Dr. Stacey Griner

HSC Assistant Professor Stacey Griner, PhD, MPH, has been appointed to serve a three-year term for the American Public Health Association (APHA) as Section Councilor in the Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) Section. Appointments are made through peer elections.

Since 1975, SRHformerly known as the Population, Reproductive and Sexual Health Section, has worked to improve the health and well-being of women, men and children. The SRH Section strives to build bridges between local and global reproductive health issues, between research and public policy and advocacy, and across academic disciplines and professions. SRH seeks to ensure that sexual and reproductive health remain major domestic and international priorities.

Dr. Griner is involved in a number of North Texas community-based sexual and reproductive health collaborations, including serving as Treasurer for the Tarrant County Infant Health Network.

At HSC, she serves as Director of the MPH Public Health Leadership program and focuses her research and teaching on maternal and child health and human sexuality and reproductive health.

Dr. Griner recently led a School of Public Health team at HSC that received an Innovative Teaching Award from the Association of Teachers of Maternal and Child Health (ATMCH) for development of course materials addressing sexual and gender minority healthcare needs.

APHA Section Councilors make recommendations on the APHA Annual Meeting program, act on Section membership and policies, formulate rules of procedure for the Section, advise on the publication of papers and reports, advise the APHA Executive Board on issues, and assist in preparing annual work plans of the Section.

APHA’s mission is to improve the health of the public and achieve equity in health status, as a champion for the health of all people and all communities.
