Profile

Dr. Monika Mitra is Nancy Lurie Marks Associate Professor of Disability Policy and Director of the Lurie Institute for Disability Policy, Heller School for Social Policy and Management, Brandeis University. She is also Associate Professor at the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health, University of Massachusetts Medical School. Her research examines the health care experiences and health outcomes of working age adults with disabilities, with a particular focus on the perinatal health of women with disabilities, violence victimization against people with disabilities, and disability-related disparities in health and access to care. Her research has been supported by a range of federal and state funding sources, including the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). Currently, Dr. Mitra is the Principal Investigator on two NICHD grants on: (1) examining the health needs and barriers to perinatal care among women who are Deaf and hard of hearing, and (2) understanding pregnancy complications and outcomes among women with intellectual and developmental disabilities. She is co-PI on a newly established national research center on parents with disabilities funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) with the purpose of addressing knowledge gaps regarding the needs of parents with disabilities.
Dr. Mitra is a member of the Disability and Health Journal editorial board. She also serves on the National Association of County & City Health Officials, Massachusetts Health and Disability Partnership, Massachusetts Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS) Advisory Committee and the Massachusetts Pregnancy to Early Life Longitudinal Data System (PELL) Advisory Committee. She is 2017 recipient of the Allan Meyers Award from the American Public Health Association Disability Section.
Prior to joining Brandeis, Dr. Mitra was Associate Professor in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and Senior Program Director for the Disability, Health and Employment Policy Unit, Center for Health Policy and Research at University of Massachusetts Medical School. Before that she was Senior Epidemiologist for the Office on Health and Disability at the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. She received her PhD and MA from Boston University, and her MS from Calcutta University, Kolkata, India.
