About Elizabeth Anderson

Elizabeth M. Anderson (she/hers) is a PhD candidate and NICHD Kirschstein-NRSA Predoctoral Fellow with master's degrees in sociology and applied statistics. As a medical sociologist, she uses qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods to investigate how social and institutional forces shape both the provision and utilization of health services, with a focus on sexual and reproductive healthcare. Her dissertation will combine existing survey and electronic health record data from the Person to Person (P2P) Health Interview Study along with original interviews with reproductive-aged women in the P2P sample. This mixed-methods approach will reveal how women’s prior sexual and reproductive healthcare experiences inform their subsequent use of healthcare and, in doing so, shape unmet need for sexual and reproductive healthcare, with a particular focus on rural-urban disparities.
