Eowna Young Harrison

Doctoral Candidate

Eowna's research primarily focuses on reproductive health disparities. Her work incorporates a life course perspective of women's reproductive decisions with specific focus on contraceptive use/non-use and method selection. She investigates pathways which lead to racial differences in rates of unintended pregnancy, infant/child outcomes, and women's health. It is Eowna's hope that her research will contribute to changes in public policy which better communicate options and strategies to help women meet their reproductive goals.

Research topics of interest: demography, fertility & contraceptive behaviors, the role of gender in everyday life, intersectionality, and changes in the makeup and defining of the modern American family.
