Trained in health policy, health services research, and social science, Dr. Redd is an interdisciplinary scholar of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) in the United States. More specifically, Dr. Redd studies domestic sexual and reproductive health (SRH) policy, structural determinants of access to and use of comprehensive SRH care and downstream health outcomes, and multilevel SRH stigma and mis/disinformation.
