Dr. Spray’s research interests involve child health and health policy, health inequities, and interdisciplinarity, with particular focus on rheumatic fever and asthma. As a medical anthropologist, she is interested in translating knowledge generated in social sciences into public health, policy, and clinical fields. Her previous research has investigated children’s negotiations with health and illness in school contexts.
