Cassandra Pierre, MPH, MD
Assistant Professor, Medicine
Boston University School of Medicine
Dr. Pierre’s research is focused on infection prevention in vulnerable populations (including the implementation of low-cost infection control interventions to reduce bacteremia among neonates in low-income settings). Her clinical interests include HIV management in special subpopulations (immigrants of color, pregnant women, transactional sex workers, and people with substance use). In addition to her role as an assistant professor, she is the medical director of Public Health Programs and the associate hospital epidemiologist at Boston Medical Center and the chair of the Diversity and Inclusion Council. Dr. Pierre’s work at CEID builds evidence-based practices for community infection control, and explores how health equity can be better integrated into pandemic planning.
