Alice Mei-Hua Tang, PhD, ScM

Professor of Public Health and Community Medicine at Tufts Medical Center; Tufts University School of Medicine

Location: Boston, MA United States

Dr. Alice Mei-Hua Tang is an infectious disease epidemiologist who has initiated or collaborated on research programs in several international settings, including in Argentina, Vietnam, Namibia, Ghana and India. Her research has largely focused on studying the causes and consequences of issues related to nutrition and metabolism (such as poor dietary quality, food insecurity, vitamin deficiencies, wasting and obesity) in people living with HIV (PLWH). She has also worked with Ministries of Health to evaluate various care and treatment programs for PLWH. Most recently, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and rising anti-Asian sentiments in the United States, Dr. Tang has pivoted her research towards community-based participatory research and reducing health disparities in Asian American communities locally. She has leveraged her global health experience in the design, implementation, and mixed-methods evaluation of community-based programs to work with several Massachusetts-based community organizations serving Asian American and Pacific Islander immigrant populations.
