Addressing multi-level determinants of whole-person health to achieve health equity

Jerica Berge’s research aims to achieve whole-person health (i.e., physical, mental, behavioral, social) for all people. Using her multidisciplinary strengths from the fields of mental health, public health, and medicine, she develops groundbreaking mixed-methods studies to identify multi-level determinants (i.e., individual, interpersonal, community, societal/structural) of whole-person health in children and families to work towards achieving health equity. Her strategic and comprehensive approach accelerates the science to directly impact clinical care and public health.
