Dr. Alyssa Lederer is an applied behavioral scientist and health education specialist. Much of her work has focused on enhancing young people's health through the design and evaluation of theory- and evidence-informed interventions, especially in the area of sexual health. She recently examined the impact of graphic images of sexually transmitted infections in sexuality education via a randomized controlled trial. Lederer's current violence prevention-related activities include organizing a gun violence prevention panel for National Health Education Week and conducting a mixed methods evaluation of a new curricular intervention related to sexuality and sexual violence at Tulane University.
