Dr. Jerel P. Calzo is an Associate Professor in the SDSU Graduate School of Public Health. He received his Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology from University of Michigan in 2010. Professor Calzo's research centers on the development of gender and sexual orientation health disparities in adolescence and young adulthood. His work is organized around two major lines of research. His first line of research focuses on the development and consequences of appearance and performance-motivated concerns and behaviors in boys and men, and how these may vary by sexual orientation, race/ethnicity, and socioeconomic position. His second line of research focuses on using community-based participatory research approaches to develop school and community-based programs to support the health and positive youth development of gender and sexual minority adolescents and young adults.
