BIO
Cho-Hee Shrader (she/her) is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Global HIV Implementation Science in ICAP at Columbia University (T32AI114398; PI: Howard). Dr. Shrader’s research explores the intersection of how social networks and neighborhood characteristics impact minority health disparities, such as HIV, stress, and substance use disorder among sexual, gender, and racial/ethnic minority communities. Her recent work incorporates implementation science to characterize influences on social network-based HIV prevention interventions. She is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Dr. Dustin Duncan’s Spatial Epidemiology Lab at Columbia University. Additionally, Dr. Shrader is an Epidemiologist/Surveillance Advisor for the Trace Initiative in ICAP at Columbia University, focusing on the implementation of rapid tests for recent HIV infection in Central America. Dr. Shrader received her PhD in Prevention Science and Community Health at the University of Miami School of Medicine (2021) which was funded by a Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award from the National Institute of Minority Health and Health Disparities. Her F31 award and dissertation explored how social networks and neighborhood determinants influenced Latino/x men who have sex with men’s access to PrEP and PrEP-related information. She is also an Enhanced Interdisciplinary Research Institute Fellow through the University of Southern California (R25DA026401).
