Work Positions
Health Educator and member, Urban Health Research Team


Jeannie Garmon was born and raised in nearby Elizabeth, New Jersey. Her desire to study urban health stemmed from her experiences growing up in that city, as well as from her many encounters with the urban healthcare system. Her desire is fueled on an almost daily basis by her work as a health educator at the University Hospital Ambulatory Care Center, where she meets with patients and learns their stories.

Jeannie earned her M.P.H. in Health Education and Behavioral Science from the Rutgers School of Public Health. She is bilingual and speaks fluent Spanish. Her research interests center on racial and ethnic disparities in health, with a specific focus on Latino health. Jeannie’s central goal is to help generate solutions to the problems created by our fractured urban healthcare system and secure better health for underserved urban minorities.
