Ashly Jordan received her PhD in Epidemiology (2019) and her Master of Public Health (2013) from the Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy at the City University of New York in New York City. Dr. Jordan has over 14 years of research and applied public health experience examining the multi-level factors that create vulnerable populations and health inequity, and the role of interventions and policies to address and alleviate these inequities in both international contexts and US-domestic contexts. Specifically, her work centers on the interface of addiction, mental health and harms related to substance use (e.g., infectious diseases such as HIV, HCV, TB) within healthcare systems, and in incarceration settings, and by social structures and policy. She is currently a Senior Epidemiologist in the Bureau of Alcohol and Drug Use Prevention, Care and Treatment at the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene working on a range of projects including overdose mortality, alcohol policy and social/structural factors contributing to morbidity and mortality due to substance use. She is a member of the International Society of Substance Use Professionals and the US-based Society for Epidemiologic Research.
