Paige Logan, MPH
University of California, San Francisco

Paige Logan is a doctoral student in Sociology at the University of California, San Francisco. She completed her MPH at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and has worked on abortion and reproductive health advocacy efforts at the state, national, and international levels. She also currently serves as a Policy and Advocacy Advisor at Ipas, a global organization committed to expanding access to abortion and contraception and volunteers at Banteay Srei, a youth development organization that serves young Southeast Asian women who are at risk of or have experienced sexual exploitation. Her research interests include social and structural determinants of health, racial and gender equity, reproductive justice, and Asian diasporas. In collaboration with Asian Health Services, Paige will explore family planning knowledge, perceptions, and experiences among Asian American young adults in Alameda County, California, with a focus on identifying the social, cultural, economic, and structural factors that shape access to abortion and contraception. Through this study, Paige intends to set the groundwork for her future research agenda, including a dissertation that will compare access to family planning services in two different US regions to gain a better understanding of how different social, economic, and political contexts in the U.S mitigate or exacerbate barriers to family planning for Asian American young adults. She aims to inform sexual and reproductive health care delivery and policy that fully recognizes and comprehensively supports Asian American communities.
