Dr. Rodriguez’s program of teaching and research has a focus on health disparities and social epidemiology, within the broader area of public health, and program evaluation, as a synthesis of theory and methods applied to the evaluation of health and social programs. Her current research on school health issues can be viewed at: http://schoolhealtheval.stanford.edu/.
In evaluation research, her interest lies in the use and exploration of mixed methods, and in social epidemiology, her interest lies in the study of the social programs and policies that may have an impact on health, well-being, and social reintegration. Dr. Rodriguez’s focus is not on health care policies per se, but on the social and economic programs and policies that may have an impact on health through their influence on social conditions and the psychological effects of social environments. Her research has implications for work and unemployment policies, health care systems, and welfare reform.
