Chloe E. Bird, Ph.D., FAAAS, FAAHB, is Director of the Center for Health Equity Research at Tufts Medicine, the Sara Murray Jordan Professor of Medicine at Tufts University School of Medicine, and Senior Sociologist at RAND. Her work focuses on addressing gaps in the evidence base on women’s health and healthcare, including work to inform the policy decisions that exacerbate the lack of research on women’s health. She currently leads a Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute(PCORI) funded project engaging stakeholders in exploring policy approaches to reduce severe maternal morbidity and maternal mortality for persons in California with Medicaid covered births, as well as a WHAM-funded team analyzing the returns on investment of increasing National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding focusing on women’s health, and a federally-funded study assessing the global status of women and LGBTQ persons. She is also collaborating on an NIH-funded study of the impact of interventions by quality-of-care collaboratives (QCCs) on maternal health outcomes across state and an NIH-funded study examining barriers to prenatal dental care in low-income urban women with dental coverage through New York’s Medicaid plan. Much of this work builds her book Gender and Health: The Effects of Constrained Choice and Social Policies, funded by the National Library of Medicine. Constrained choice provides a model that integrates social and biological theories to understand how the contributions of decisions made by families, employers, communities and those at the level of social and economic policy shape the opportunity to pursue a healthy life. This approach is designed to inform collaborations with stakeholders at all levels in addressing health disparities. Dr. Bird has served as a senior advisor in the NIH’s Office for Research on Women’s Health and as editor-in-chief of the journal Women's Health Issues. She received the 2020 William Foote Whyte career award from American Sociological Association (ASA) Section on Sociological Practice and Public Sociology and the 2021 Distinguished Career Award in the Practice of Sociology from the ASA. Dr. Bird is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the American Academy of Health Behavior, and a member of Women of Impact in Healthcare. She earned her B.A. with honors in sociology from Oberlin College and her M.A. and Ph.D. with honors in sociology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
