Dr. Whitney Irie is an Assistant Professor at Boston College’s School of Social Work, Lecturer on Population Medicine at Harvard Medical School, and Research Faculty at the Fenway Institute in Boston, MA. Dr. Irie’s primary research focuses on equitable access and effective implementation of biomedical HIV prevention strategies such as preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for Black Women in the United States. Her broader goal is to implement innovative solutions to complex problems at the environmental, structural, and social levels that improve, promote, and protect the sexual and reproductive health of Black women in the U.S. Dr. Irie’s research situates health disparities as a consequence of social and structural practices driven by systems of oppression rather than individual behavior.
Dr. Irie utilizes implementation science to evaluate the effectiveness of evidence-based interventions designed to improve HIV prevention care provision in diverse clinical settings that serve Black women. In addition, Dr. Irie utilizes stated preference research and other formative and participatory approaches to appropriately tailor implementation strategies and to promote the translation of evidence to action. Dr. Irie is the Assistant Director of the HIV Infectious Diseases and Global Health Implementation Science Institute (HIGH-IRI).
Dr. Irie received her doctoral degree in social work from the Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis and completed a master’s degree in social work at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Dr. Irie completed her NIH funded postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard Medical School’s Department of Population Medicine.
