Biography

Candice Belanoff, ScD, MPH, is a Maternal and Child Health Epidemiologist with a particular interest in the relationship of social forces and inequities to patterns of population health. She is currently investigating associations between measures of structural racism and the occurrence of preterm birth and other adverse perinatal outcomes. Recent research has also addressed health outcomes related to cesarean delivery; substance use among women of reproductive age; and assisted reproductive technology.

Candice designed and is the founding Director of the Community Assessment, Program Design, Implementation and Evaluation (CAPDIE) certificate program, which graduates dozens of newly minted community health practitioners every year. She also teaches several courses at BUSPH, including Assessment and Planning for Health Promotion (SB820), Social Justice and the Health of Populations: Racism and other systems of oppression (MC775) and Advanced Practice and Research Methods for Public Health Equity (MC776). Candice has won multiple teaching awards including the annual Norman A. Scotch Award for Excellence in Teaching. She is known for authentic community engagement and the explicit incorporation of anti-racist, health equity frameworks in her coursework.

In addition to everything public health, Candice loves music, riding her bike, dogs, donkeys, her friends and her family.
