Chadwick K. Campbell, PhD, MPH
Chadwick K. Campbell, PhD, MPH, is an Assistant Professor in the Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health and Human Longevity at the University of California San Diego. For more than 18 years, Dr. Campbell has worked in HIV prevention programs and on research studies focused primarily on gay and bisexual men of color.
In his work, he primarily employs qualitative methods to: (1) highlight the social meanings of a stigmatized illness; (2) examine how those meanings are constituted within specific social, structural, and geographic inequities; (3) consider the impacts of these inequities at the intersections of race, gender, class, and sexuality; and (4) explore how each of these shape health outcomes and overall well-being.
Dr. Campbell’s dissertation research focused on the experiences of HIV status disclosure, stigma processes, and the broader lived experiences of Black gay and bisexual men living with HIV in the Deep South. His work has been published in Social Science and Medicine, Archives of Sexual Behavior, AIDS and Behavior, Culture Health and Sexuality, JAIDS, and Sociology of Health and Illness, among other publications.
