“Stigma-related Mechanisms and Interventions to Ameliorate Its Impact on Health”
Corina Lelutiu-Weinberger, PhD
An applied social psychologist with expertise in interventions for health promotion, Dr. Leluțiu-Weinberger has spent her career at the intersection of social science, epidemiology, and public health, to reduce the impact of stigma on health and well-being of minority groups, both nationally and internationally. She has built a program of funded intervention research that uses mobile health (mHealth) technologies to reduce global health inequities. Her current work includes leadership of two NIH-funded projects aimed at improving HIV-related health outcomes among gay and bisexual men in Romania: (1) a program to introduce pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) into Romania’s health care practice; and (2) a large-scale trial testing the effectiveness of an mHealth pilot intervention to reduce HIV risk, decrease problematic alcohol consumption, and improve mental health.
