Dr. Stephanie Mayne is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and the University of Pennsylvania and a faculty member at PolicyLab and the Center for Pediatric Clinical Effectiveness at CHOP. Her research focuses on the prevention of cardiovascular disease and promotion of healthier lifestyles in children and their families. Dr. Mayne employs multi-level and longitudinal epidemiological methods to study how factors at the individual, family, neighborhood, and policy level influence risk factor behaviors and cardiometabolic outcomes. She is particularly interested in how the neighborhood environments in which families live and spend time impact their health.
Her current projects include epidemiological investigations of unhealthy behavior clustering among youth using nationally representative data, understanding the influence of the neighborhood social environment on diet for low income families, and a discrete choice experiment to identify parent and primary care clinician’s priorities for wellness in early childhood. She is also engaged in research to promote innovation in pediatric primary care.
Prior to joining the Perelman School of Medicine, Dr. Mayne was a postdoctoral fellow in cardiovascular disease epidemiology at Northwestern University. She received her PhD in epidemiology from Drexel University, Master’s in Health Science (MHS) from Johns Hopkins University, and BS in biology from the University of Michigan.
