Susan Lee MPH

Program Manager

Susan S. Lee is a research program manager at PolicyLab at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and the Division of Adolescent Medicine. She has a background in adolescent health communication research across various risky behaviors and medias. Her current work is focused on the development of clinical, behavioral, health communication and technology, policy and community-engaged research to better understand and improve the health of adolescents at high risk for or living with HIV/AIDS and other marginalized youth including LGBTQ and homeless adolescents. 

  • Youth-friendly technology, such as smart phones and social media sites, can be used to help improve and promote HIV and STI prevention and treatment among adolescents. We are developing a variety of interventions that incorporate short message service (SMS), mobile application programs, and utilization of social media sites.

  • PolicyLab doesn’t do its research in a vacuum. We actively partner and collaborate with different academic and community-based organizations to address policy issues that affect health inequities among marginalized adolescents.

Ms. Lee works with the Adolescent Initiative, an HIV prevention and treatment program, as well as the Craig-Dalsimer Division of Adolescent Medicine, and the Gender and Sexuality Clinic at CHOP. She earned a Masters of Public Health at Drexel University's School of Public Health.
