The School of Public Health and Health Sciences has announced the appointment of Professor Elizabeth Bertone-Johnson as Chair of the Department of Health Promotion and Policy. Bertone-Johnson is a member of the CRF Stress Research Group and a Principal Investigator. Beginning as an assistant professor in the Department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology, she has taken on numerous leadership roles within the department prior to her role as interim chair of Health Promotion and Policy.
Bertone-Johnson’s research focuses on the epidemiology and etiology of premenstrual syndrome; the epidemiology and etiology of accelerated reproductive aging and early menopause; and the intersection of reproductive and cardiovascular health in women. Her goals are both to identify new ways for women to improve their gynecologic health, and to determine if gynecologic health conditions may be early sentinels for cardiovascular disease.
