Dr. Warren’s body of work emerges through the lens of Standpoint Theory. Her research agenda centers on urban health and underserved populations, with a goal of promoting data to decrease health and communication inequalities. This agenda addresses the concepts of culture and health across the life span and across systems in diverse urban contexts particular to African Americans in the United States. Dr. Warren’s presentation highlights key studies and works in progress from her research portfolio. Connections are made between her unique perspective in the areas of information seeking and in community engagement to demonstrate new insights in theory development/adaptation. Dr. Warren also presents research that utilizes these frameworks to further understanding of urban health and communication in virtual and in real world contexts.
