*** About the Speaker ***

Dr. Rotheram-Borus designs and implements interventions that have lasting effects on research science and public health, in part because she has long been committed to finding and including in her program designs what Harvard’s Clayton Christensen has called disruptive innovations: new ways of approaching health care and science that shake up the industry by making something easier, less expensive, and better. Beginning with her early successes changing the way shelters think about teen suicide prevention and turning social skills into a game for elementary school students, Dr. Rotheram-Borus has continuously implemented her vision of making science useful, realistic, and accessible to those who need it. She has worked in the area of HIV for the past 25 years. Dr. Rotheram-Borus has received more than 70+ grants from funders such as the National Institute of Health as well as private foundations and has published over 350 journal articles.
