Barbara J. Guthrie, RN, PhD

Dr. Guthrie’s work addresses how communities affect abusive or unhealthy behaviors. With an interest in the intersection of ethnicity, gender, age, and class, Dr. Guthrie has researched and designed several ethnic and gender responsive health promotion programs. She has examined the ways that groups of adolescent girls initiate others into substance-abuse or sexually-related behaviors, and used the findings to try to reverse the process through peer-led STD-prevention programs.
