Thank You, Dr. Chambers!

Please join us in congratulating PTBi researcher and UCSF faculty member, Dr. Brittany Chambers, as she moves on to a new role at UC Davis in the Department of Human Ecology! UC Davis has offered Dr. Chambers a tenure track position as well as funding and space to start her own research lab rooted in equity to support her continued success as a Black woman who researches racism in a public institution.

Dr. Chambers began her time with PTBi as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow and quickly went on to gain a faculty position. Among her many accomplishments with PTBi, Dr. Chambers was the principal investigator of one of PTBi's flagship studies, SOLARS. Dr. Chambers is also a co-investigator for another of our flagship projects, the Fresno-based EMBRACE study. She will continue to serve in this capacity in her new role with Davis. In addition, Dr. Chambers will also be conducting the evaluation for West Fresno-based Black Maternal Wellness & Innovation Lab. She also published numerous papers on the impact of racism on Black women. Watch the video to see Dr. Chamber's 2018 Collaboratory, which was the culmination of her work as a Post Doctoral fellow.

Dr. Chambers is the embodiment of what it means to do research in the service of our most impacted communities. We are forever grateful for her teachings, her passion, and her contributions to improving birth outcomes for Black and Brown birthing people. 

While we will miss Dr. Chambers hugely, we are thrilled for her and pleased to know that we'll still be working in partnership with her in UC Davis!

Congratulations, Dr. Chambers!
