She completed post-doctoral fellowships at Johns Hopkins School of Nursing and the University of California, San Diego. Dr. Stockman has worked in a variety of academic and governmental settings relevant to the prevention of HIV and other adverse health outcomes among vulnerable women. As a trained infectious disease epidemiologist, Dr. Stockman specializes in HIV prevention, with a specific focus on the role of gender-based violence and substance abuse among low-income underserved women. Currently, she is addressing these intersecting epidemics among substance-using and ethnic minority populations in the following locations: San Diego, CA; the Mexico-U.S. border region; Baltimore, MD; and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Her ultimate goal is to develop culturally tailored, multilevel HIV prevention interventions that address gender-based issues for women at risk for HIV infection.
