Evan Krueger


Dr. Evan Krueger is a population health scientist whose research addresses the social and interpersonal determinants of minority health, with a focus on understanding sexual and gender minority (SGM; e.g., lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) disparities in mental health and addiction. He is especially interested in the social environmental factors (e.g., stigma, discrimination, policies) that predispose SGM people to worse health than non-SGM people. Evan’s work takes an interdisciplinary collaborative approach, and he strives to conduct high-impact work with real-world applications for policy and intervention.
