Leslie Chatelain, Jr., MPH
Leslie Chatelain, Jr. is a Research Associate I at the Institute for Community Health.
Before joining ICH, Leslie worked as a research intern with the Men’s Health League at the Cambridge Public Health Department. There, he provided technical assistance on an assessment tool that is designed to not only provide a snapshot of the status of men’s health within Cambridge but also provide a brief glance at the work the League does and potentially drive further programming. His prior research experiences include a survey-based field evaluation of water sources, sanitation and hygiene, and maternal and child health within a rural community in Tanzania, creating a dashboard for an organization focused on provision of educational resources to under-served students, and also producing an evaluation plan for a mHealth sexual and reproductive health program run in Mozambique.
His professional public health interests exist on a rather broad sphere encompassing a fascination with the intersections between biology, infectious and chronic disease, and global public health. These interests are centered around the promotion of health equity and addressing issues of poverty, social justice, and health disparities (particularly access to care) through substantive program development/implementation based around robust monitoring and evaluation tools. He is also passionate about capacity-building for community-based, community-participatory programs and interventions. At ICH, his projects include NHP – Partnership for Community Health, IHR Healthy ME, Community Health Improvement (CHI), and Lawrence Strategic Planning.
Leslie received his MPH from Boston University and his BA in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology from Princeton University.
