Our Faculty

More than 150 faculty members work within the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health. They have a wide range of expertise, from monitoring and assessing health risks and opportunities in populations, to helping build health-supporting social environments through policy, advocacy, and programs. They are educators, advisors, researchers, practitioners and community leaders. They come from backgrounds in quantitative, behavioral, environmental and social sciences, policy and government, exercise and health sciences and anthropology, among many other areas. They all work in collaboration with each other and with community partners, and are especially focused on the training and education of future leaders and practitioners in the public health fields.

Biography

Dawn Richardson is an associate professor in the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health, where she teaches Urban and Community Health, Global Health and other courses.  

Richardson’s work examines how the places where people live – in both  the social and physical environments – can impact health and social mobility. 

She uses community-based participatory research principles while helping people understand how changes in the way we think about things such as family leave, policies supporting breastfeeding and access to good schools, healthy food, transportation and adequate housing can have an impact on community health. Her research focus led her to serve as board chair for Upstream Public Health, a non-profit focused on promoting policy and improving health for all Oregonians. 

Richardson is also co-director of the BUILD EXITO program, an undergraduate research training program that supports students from diverse backgrounds on their pathway to becoming scientific researchers.
