Research and Expertise:
Dr. Ladin teaches courses in health policy, research methods, public health ethics, health disparities, and medical ethics. Dr. Ladin incorporates quantitative, qualitative, and normative approaches to study how systemic disadvantage affects health and the ability of individuals to make and pursue lifeplans. Specifically, her research examines socioeconomic and racial disparities in transplantation, mental health treatment, aging, and immigrant health. She aims to better understand how social networks impact health disparities, acute medical decision-making, and resilience in major life transitions. Her research aims to: (1) understand the role of social networks in complex medical decision-making, (2) evaluate the impact of public policies on the health of vulnerable populations, and (3) identify barriers and interventions to improve health care utilization among vulnerable populations.

Dr Ladin is also the Director of the Lab for Research on Ethics, Aging, and Community Health (REACH Lab) at Tufts University.
