Chloe E. Bird, PhD, is a senior sociologist with the RAND Corporation, a nonprofit, nonpartisan research organization in Santa Monica, California. She is also Professor of Sociology at Pardee RAND Graduate School. Her research examines gender and racial/ethnic differences in the physical and mental health of individuals and in the health care they receive. She is particularly interested in how neighborhood characteristics—from their socioeconomic composition and degree of economic segregation to their air quality and walkability—might contribute to these gender and racial/ethnic health differences.
Dr. Bird is Associate Editor of Women’s Health Issues, and has been Chair of the Medical Sociology Section of the American Sociological Associat
