To this end, her work is situated at the intersections of psychological science and population health, to examine behavioral and psychosocial processes that link adult health and disease risk to physical and social exposures during emerging adulthood. Dr. Pittman's work seeks to understand people of color in context, critically examining the contributions of race/ethnicity, culture, racism and whiteness, structural inequities, macro- and meso- level environmental factors, and a host of diverse lived experiences on health behavior and outcomes in emerging adults.
