Hayley V. McMahon, MSPH, CPH

Hi! I’m Hayley. I am a public health scientist studying abortion and advocating for reproductive justice. My work focuses on structural barriers to abortion access in the U.S. South, self-managed abortion, abortion misinformation, and qualitative methods. Currently, I am a doctoral student in the Department of Behavioral, Social, and Health Education Sciences (BSHES) at Emory Rollins School of Public Health and a Doctoral Fellow at The Center for Reproductive Health Research in the Southeast (RISE). Before coming to Emory, I earned an MSPH in Health Education and Health Communications from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, a Certification in Public Health from the National Board of Public Health Examiners, and a BA in Cultural Anthropology from Duke University. I am also a proud, first-generation scholar from rural Appalachia! When I’m not working, I’m buying way too many books at my local used bookstore, traveling with my husband Bryan, napping with my shelter kitties, or searching for Miocene fossils!
