Ashly Jordan is director of Research and Program Evaluation at the New York State Office of Addiction Services and Supports (OASAS). Dr. Jordan is a multi-disciplinary public health and research epidemiologist with over 15 years of experience in conducting applied public health research, surveillance, program, and evaluation work at the interface of viral hepatitis and other infectious diseases, poverty and structural inequities, and substance use. Drawing on theory-based multi-level understandings of illness and health, and principles of health equity and social justice, her research has focused on the interplay between individual, social, and structural factors. Dr. Jordan’s work employs rigorous quantitative and qualitative methods to better understand factors and policies which contribute to risk, and which could be modified to improve individual- and population-level health and well-being through treatment and prevention.
