At UNC, Dr. Westreich studies HIV and its intersection with women’s reproductive health and chronic disease. He also develops epidemiologic methods for implementation science and currently serves as associate editor for the American Journal of Epidemiology.
When he was a doctoral student in UNC’s epidemiology department, he earned nine unique research-related awards. These include the Bernard G. Greenberg Award for Excellence in Doctoral Research, and the Barbara Sorenson Hulka Dissertation Award.
“I’m honored and pleased to serve in an editorial capacity for these journals,” Dr. Westreich said. “I’m hoping to help make epidemiologic methods as clear and intuitive as possible.”
