Aaron Richterman, MD, MPH is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. He uses multiple research methodologies to evaluate the relationships between poverty, food security, and individual and population health outcomes (in particular those related to infectious diseases). He is interested in both non-experimental approaches to assessing the effects of poverty reduction and social protection programs on health outcomes, and in conducting hypothesis-driven research to design and evaluate innovative economic interventions to enable health behaviors and improve clinical outcomes. His work spans high- and low-income settings, with a focus on public-academic and community-academic partnerships. He has clinical expertise in HIV, and sees patients living with HIV in clinic weekly. Dr. Richterman earned his MD at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine and his MPH at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
