TERRI LEWINSON (she/her/hers) is an associate professor at The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice. Her research focuses on the health experiences of people who have been housing marginalized—whether that may be living in an extended-stay hotel, assisted-living facility, senior housing setting, or an affordable housing complex. Her housing-as-health work explores social determinants such as resident stress, renter mobility, eviction threat, and environmental conditions that lead to poor health outcomes. Dr. Lewinson is a Gerontological Society of America Fellow, Health and Aging Policy Fellow, Academy Health Fellow, and a John A. Hartford Faculty Scholar. She earned a B.A. in developmental psychology from the University of South Carolina and an M.S.W. and Ph.D. from the University of Georgia’s School of Social Work.
