Rosalie Torres Stone focuses on a theoretical foundation and research studies in racial/ethnic economic disparities. Her empirical work in mental health and health disparities extends existing conceptual frameworks by including socioeconomic and cultural-specific factors in examining health outcomes and access to care for underserved populations. Over the last 12 years, she has been involved in numerous research projects addressing access to appropriate care and health outcomes for Hispanics. She was an assistant professor in the Sociology Department at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where she received the Arts and Science Distinguished Teaching Award and studied the immigration experiences of Latino youth residing in rural communities. At Clark, Torres Stone hopes to work with undergraduates, graduate students and community stakeholders to apply sociological theories and research methodologies in understanding and eliminating disproportionate health-related burdens in minority populations. Torres Stone earned her B.A. in social relations from Lehigh University and her M.A. and Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Connecticut.
