Director of Research, Chicago Recovery Alliance
Suzanne Carlberg-Racich is an Assistant Professor in the Master of Public Health Program where she works to illuminate, contextualize, and advance social justice. Her research examines the lived experiences of individuals who are isolated by the intersection of stigma and policy that permeates health systems, social services, and broader society. In her scholarship, Dr. Carlberg-Racich is motivated by the use of community-based participatory research practices that maximize partnership, the strategic dissemination of findings to advocate for change, and the evaluation of public health interventions to establish best practices. A purposeful blend of scholar, practitioner, teacher, and activist, Dr. Carlberg-Racich works to improve health equity directly in communities. Her community-based work includes eighteen years of collaborating with people who use drugs to achieve positive change at the Chicago Recovery Alliance, a comprehensive harm reduction organization, where she is now Director of Research.
