Eyal Oren, PhD, MS, is an epidemiologist interested in infectious disease, with an emphasis on respiratory health. He is interested in multidisciplinary, community-engaged approaches to addressing population health disparities and collaborative work that is innovative and emphasizes new tools and technologies. Methodologically, his focus is on the intersection between social, environmental, and spatial epidemiologic methods, and their application to both health differences and disparities.
Dr. Oren's recent work has explored the ties between the environment, social factors and respiratory health. Two of his primary active projects include a study examining the association between stress and asthma among middle-schoolers, as well as the use of health applications for medication adherence for latent tuberculosis infection. His focus has primarily been on vulnerable populations, both in the US, on the border, and globally, in Vietnam, Mexico and Ghana. In Dr. Oren's previous life in government, he conducted epidemiologic investigations to support disease control and outbreak management; and evaluated the effectiveness of disease surveillance activities.
