Elizabeth (Liz) Mosley, PhD, MPH, is a Limited Term Clinical Assistant Professor with the Mark Chaffin Center for Healthy Development (MCCHD) at Georgia State University School of Public Health. She investigates how social determinants (including gender, race/ethnicity, class, and stigma) affect sexual and reproductive health equity in the US and globally. Her research applies quantitative, qualitative, multi-level, and community-engaged methods to study a number of topics including family planning; pregnancy support interventions; HIV/AIDS; and gender-based violence across North and Latin America, sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, Europe, and Australia. Dr. Mosley is also passionate about teaching and mentoring, and has an award-winning teaching record with undergraduate and graduate students in public health, nursing, psychology, and biology. With the MCCHD, she works with Dr. Kathleen Baggett as well as the Alcohol and Sexual Assault Prevention Lab with Drs. Amanda Gilmore and Ruschelle Leone. Dr. Mosley is also a co-Investigator with Emory University’s Center for Reproductive Health Research in the Southeast (RISE) at Rollins School of Public Health, where she completed a Postdoctoral Fellowship from 2018-2020. With RISE, she is a Project Principal Investigator with the Georgia Medication Abortion Project, led by reproductive justice organization SisterLove, and co-Principal Investigator evaluating the Embrace Refugee Birth Support program in Clarkston with Emory Decatur Hospital and the Georgia Doula Access Working Group. She also supports RISE’s “EnFaith” project, which engages Georgia’s faith communities to develop church-based sexual and reproductive health programs.
Dr. Mosley completed her PhD in Health Behavior and Health Education at the University of Michigan, where she was also a NIH predoctoral trainee in public health demography with the Population Studies Center. Her dissertation used nationally-representative surveys to analyze attitudes toward abortion, gender roles, and economic equality in the U.S. and South Africa. From 2011-2012, she served as a maternal and child health Global Health Corps Fellow in Uganda with the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. Dr. Mosley completed her MPH at the University of North Carolina, where her Capstone project addressed sexual and domestic violence with diverse stakeholders across the state. During her MPH, Dr. Mosley was trained by UNC BirthPartners and DONA International; she still volunteers as a full spectrum doula.
