Associate Professor of Sociology, Florida State University

Amy Burdette is an associate professor of sociology at Florida State University. Her research investigates connections between religious involvement, neighborhood context, and health. Her research has examined social variations in health and health behaviors at virtually every stage of the life course from birth (e.g., low-birth weight), to adolescence (e.g., HPV vaccination, substance use), to young adulthood (e.g., BMI, sexual activity), to adulthood (e.g., breastfeeding, obesity, psychological distress, prescription drug misuse, medical marijuana use), and old age (e.g., cognitive functioning, mobility). Much of her research has paid special attention to disadvantaged populations, including low-income urban mothers.
