Presenter Bio
Natalie LeBlanc, PhD, MPH, BSN, RN

Natalie Leblanc,PhD, MPH, BSN, RN current research focuses on health care provider (e.g, physicians, nurses, social workers) perspectives, praxis and engagement processes in sexual health promotion, specifically couple-centered approaches across the HIV prevention and care continuums. She also studies the context of vulnerability to adverse sexual health outcomes (HIV/STI transmission) among marginalized populations such as: same-sex male couples, Black couples, women of color, and non-heteronormative populations such as men of color who have sex with men. These lines of inquiry aim to: acknowledge the role of racism and anti-Black stigma and violence on sexual health inequities; discern assets in the health and community settings that can be leveraged to promote sexual health, specifically HIV prevention and engagement across the HIV care continuum. Dr. Leblanc primarily uses multi-method qualitative/quantitative approaches to achieve these aims.
