Bio/Research

Gina Fedock is an Assistant Professor in the School of Social Service Administration. Her work centers on improving women's physical and mental health and spans the boundaries of public health, criminal justice, and social work. Her research focuses on women’s interactions with formal systems (e.g. medical and criminal-legal systems) and examines influencing factors on women’s health. Her research includes implementing, testing, and evaluating interventions that are designed to improve the quality of women's health in the community and within correctional settings.

In addition, her work expands a trauma-informed framework of understanding and addressing women's health needs. She examines and integrates women's experiences of gender-based violence, such as sexual violence and intimate partner violence, into her research. Through a human rights framework, her work incorporates advocacy for addressing social injustices in order to improve women's health and wellbeing.
