Ramos, Rose Marie Govea

School of Medicine
Emergency Medicine

I am an epidemiologist and health services researcher with expertise in health disparities and chronic disease epidemiology. Since earning my Doctoral degree in Public Health at the University of Pittsburgh in 2005, my research has focused on identifying social, environmental, and behavioral risk factors (otherwise known as social determinants of health) that confer risk of disease and/or injury as well as impede post-treatment resilience. I believe that when these determinants persistently intersect, the result is perpetual health disparities. Furthermore, it remains uncertain whether poor resilience following injury or disease complications ?accelerates? aging processes such cognitive decline. Since 2011, I have also served in a Research Administration capacity that included oversight/development of research design, execution of specific aims, collection and statistical analyses of qualitative and quantitative data, preparing human subject research protocols submitted to civilian and military IRBs, and pre-/ post-award management. My teaching and mentoring experience includes graduate-level public health courses and serving as a Faculty mentor for graduate students (MPH, PhD, and DrPH), medical students, Residents, and Junior Faculty. To date, the funding from my research has been from the DoD (intramural), NASA, and the NIH. I have also served as primary and co-author on over 20 peer-reviewed publications and progress reports to governmental organizations.
