ABOUT Dr. Bonnielin Swenor

Dr. Bonnelin Swenor is the founder and director of the Johns Hopkins Disability Health Research Center, which aims to  shift the paradigm from ‘living with a disability’ to ‘thriving with a disability’ through research, education, and policy.  Dr. Swenor’s research is motivated by her personal experience with low vision. Her work takes a data-driven approach to advancing health equity for people with disabilities. To achieve this, she focuses on three areas: (1) developing novel methods to assess and track health and healthcare inequities for people with disabilities; (2) testing innovative strategies to reduce these inequities, and (3) building approaches that promote disability inclusion in research and higher education. Dr. Swenor is an associate professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing,  the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine Wilmer Eye Institute and in the Department of Epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
