Biography

Dr. Lauren Savaglio Battles is a lecturer at Arizona State University in the College of Health Solutions, where she teaches public health, health education, and health sciences classes. She is also the Degree Director for the international public health program. She has taught previously at George Mason University in the areas of environmental health, public health and nutrition. 

Her current research is focused on COVID-19, and faculty mentoring and student self-efficacy in at-risk populations. She has worked in the field of environmental health and preventative health in susceptible populations. Her previous research projects at the Institute of Medicine focused on environmental health, bioethics, pathology, and veterans' health. Her other research interests include sustainable food practices and consumption, nutritional outcomes of children of both HIV-positive and HIV-negative mothers in Kenya, and HIV and neuropathy. She has performed HIV/AIDS-related research with Johns-Hopkins University and the Whitman-Walker Health. She is practicing as an EMT and served as a girls' education and empowerment agent in the Peace Corps in Togo, West Africa.

She enjoys hiking, playing outdoors, and volunteering for mountain search and rescue (which combines the first two things!).
