Dr. Bridgette M. Brawner graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Villanova University and both a Master of Science in Nursing and a Doctorate of Philosophy in Nursing from the University of Pennsylvania. In 2009, she was selected as the University’s inaugural Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow immediately upon completion of her doctoral degree. Dr. Brawner has worked as a Neonatal Intensive Care nurse at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and a Psychiatric-Mental Health Advanced Practice Registered Nurse in 2005, specializing in working with children and families.

 

Dr. Brawner is currently an Assistant Professor of Nursing at the University of Pennsylvania and a member of the standing faculty in both the Center for Health Equity Research and the Center for Global Women’s Health. She is passionate about urban women’s physical and mental health, and works toward sexual health promotion in disenfranchised communities. Her motto is “changing the world, one community at a time”. Dr. Brawner’s unique, multi-method lines of inquiry integrate innovative methodologies–such as GIS mapping and biobehavioral measures–to answer complex questions. Her current HIV prevention work takes a novel, multi-level approach to better understand risk contexts and intervene across individual, social and structural levels.
