Dr. Allsworth joined the faculty at Washington University in 2006 and is an epidemiologist in the Division of Clinical Research. She is a current K12 Multidisciplinary Clinical Research Career Development Program Scholar and has been an investigator on multiple longitudinal large-scale population based epidemiologic studies in women’s health, including the Study of Women’s Health across the Nation (SWAN), a multi-ethnic, longitudinal study of women’s health during the menopausal transition and Project PROTECT, an intervention study to improve dual method contraceptive use.  Her research interests include: the role of the interaction between race/ethnicity and inflammation in the onset and consequences of bacterial vaginosis; the association between social factors and obstetric and gynecologic outcomes, such as preterm birth; the impact of stress on reproductive aging; and the impact of financial barriers on the use and continuation of contraception.
