"Adrienne Hall (MPH, ’18), Health Equity Institute (HEI) research associate, delivered a team presentation, “From West Point to Hunters View: Race, class, and the health effects of public housing redevelopment,” co-authored with Laura Mamo (co-principal investigator), HEI professor of health education; Melissa Hagan, assistant professor of psychology; and colleagues from UCSF Leslie Dubbin(co-principal investigator) and Irene Yen (co-principal investigator), at the 2018 annual meeting of the American Public Health Association (APHA) in San Diego.

Hall presented preliminary findings from the three-year study, Community Health After Neighborhood Transformation (CHANT), a UCSF-SF State collaboration funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. CHANT deploys mixed-methods to examine the health and social effects of HOPE SF, a public-private housing policy initiative designed to rebuild and redesign public housing developments into mixed-income neighborhoods in San Francisco. The CHANT research team aims to understand how these significant changes impact residents’ experiences and health outcomes. A recent graduate from the Masters of Public Health program and a Health Equity Internship Scholar, Hall enjoyed the opportunity to present and attend meaningful sessions as part of the large SF State presence at this year’s APHA conference."
