Leah Lombardi, MPH is a Data Analyst at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Center for Injury Research and Prevention.
Leah Lombardi, MPH joined the Center for Injury Research and Prevention in 2019 as a Graduate Research Assistant. Leah’s culminating master’s thesis utilized the New Jersey Safety and Health Outcomes (NJ-SHO) Data Warehouse at CIRP to examine sociodemographic variations in child restraint system use among crash-involved children in New Jersey. She is currently working as a Data Analyst with Dr. Allison Curry on epidemiological projects related to driving safety using the NJ-SHO. Her research interests include child passenger safety, health disparities, maternal and child health, and epidemiological methods.
While an MPH student, Leah completed a fellowship at Drexel University’s Urban Health Collaborative (UHC). As a UHC fellow, Leah worked as a Research Assistant with the West Philadelphia Promise Neighborhood’s Data and Research Core, which focuses on the health and education of children and families living in West Philadelphia. Leah previously was a Research Intern at the Penn State Cancer Institute, where she worked on public health interventions aimed at reducing cancer disparities in Pennsylvania.
In her present role at CIRP, Leah hopes to continue to use her epidemiological and data management skills to benefit the safety and health of children. She also hopes to participate in the dissemination of her team’s research, as she has an interest in making data and public health research accessible.
