Marizen Ramirez, PhD, MPH
Injuries and violence are the leading causes of death for people aged 1-44. To address this pressing issue, I study some of the most prevalent injury and violence problems of today to identify effective and evidence-based solutions to prevent trauma and its adverse impacts in the home, workplace and community. My work has a special focus on society’s most vulnerable populations at risk for violence (especially bullying) and injuries: children; people with disabilities; occupational injuries (especially agricultural workers); Black, Indigenous, people of color, and other stigmatized communities; and rural populations.
