Jeanelle Sheeder MSPH, PhD

  • Obstetrics and Gynecology Family Planning (SOM)

Research Description

Dr. Sheeder’s expertise is in clinical research with a focus on family planning, contraceptive decision-making, adolescents, and adolescent pregnancy. The purpose of her research is to investigate contraceptive choice among female adolescents in a clinic that seeks to eliminate many of the commonly reported barriers to contraceptive uptake. It is her hope that this research will improve the overall health of our high-risk, overweight young women by increasing the uptake of effective contraceptive methods that will reduce their risk of adolescent pregnancy, future obesity, and cardiovascular disease.
