On March 24, 2023, Hudson Santos will present as part of the Carolina Population Center’s 2022-2023 Interdisciplinary Research Seminar Series.
Hudson Santos is Professor and the Dolores J. Chambreau Endowed Chair in Nursing at the University of Miami School of Nursing and Health Studies (SONHS). Born in Brazil, Dr. Santos immigrated to the US to complete a postdoctoral fellowship at Duke University School of Nursing (2015) after obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the State University of Paraiba, and a PhD in Nursing Science from the University of Sao Paulo. As a doctoral student, he spent a year as visiting scholar between the University of British Columbia at Vancouver and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH). Prior to joining the University of Miami, Dr. Santos was a tenured distinguished associate professor and director of the biobehavioral laboratory at UNC-CH School of Nursing.
Dr. Santos is an internationally renowned nurse researcher and principal investigator of multiple funded studies focused on the mechanisms of social determinants of health (SDOH) and developmental health trajectories for at-risk populations, with a strong emphasis on Latinx communities. Specifically, he explores how SDOH, and adverse life events affect maternal-child health and developmental outcomes among at-risk children. His methodological expertise includes bio-social studies, longitudinal cohorts, and clinical interventions. His work bridges the gap between the biological and social domains in nursing science, addressing the developmental origins of health and disease.
