Jenny Higgins

I’m a proud faculty member in the departments of both Gender and Women’s Studies (GWS) and Obstetrics and Gynecology. With training in both GWS and public health, I conduct mixed-methods research on sexuality, gender, and reproductive health. In all of my research and advocacy, I endeavor to help folks achieve their sexual health goals—for example, avoiding unwanted pregnancy and STIs, maximizing sexual well-being—within the context of their lives, relationships, and communities.

For more information on my research, publications, and teaching, please check out my webpage.
