Chenoa Allen received her PhD in Health Behavior and Health Education from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, in 2016. She also has an MS in health and medical sciences from the University of California, Berkeley - University of California, San Francisco, Joint Medical Program. Chenoa's research focuses on how structural forces, including state and local immigration-related policies, affect health and health care access for children in immigrant families. As an HDRS postdoctoral fellow, Chenoa is studying whether extending public insurance coverage to pregnant undocumented immigrants improves birth outcomes for foreign-born mothers. Chenoa also studies methodological and measurement issues related to health disparities research; over the long term, she is working toward obtaining better data on under-studied immigrant and refugee groups.
