The Simon Research Lab is dedicated to promoting health and health care equity. Using community-based participatory action approaches to research, training, and education, our goal is to promote social change that will improve the health of culturally diverse, underserved populations.
The Simon Research Lab is led by Dr. Melissa A. Simon, Vice Chair of Clinical Research in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, George H. Gardner Professor of Clinical Gynecology, and Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Preventive Medicine and Medical Social Sciences. Dr. Simon's primary research interests are aimed at eliminating health inequities among low income, medically underserved women across the lifespan.
