Maya Corneille, Ph.D.

Dr. Maya Corneille is the co-director of the Collective Health and Education Equity Research (CHEER) collaborative. 


My work uses both qualitative and quantitative approaches to examine reducing the negative impacts of racism and sexism on sexual health, HIV/AIDS prevention, cardiovascular health, and education leadership.
