Dr. Hall's research is broadly focused on adolescent sexual and reproductive health and family planning in the U.S. and Africa. She is particularly interested in the intersections between reproductive health and mental and physical health across adolescence and young adulthood. Much of her work has focused on how health and wellbeing (or lack thereof) shape risk of adolescent and unintended pregnancy (biological, behavioral and social determinants), and in turn, how adolescent pregnancy shapes subsequent health and social outcomes across the reproductive life course, in both domestic and global contexts. Also, with a clinical background, she is interested in integrated models of care and patient-centered health services/community interventions that concurrently address reproductive health/family planning AND other dimensions of women's health including mental health, chronic disease, and social context.
