Jordyn G. Wartts


Jordyn Wartts spent ten years in upstate New York before returning to her hometown of St. Louis, MO. In New York, she earned a BS in Health and Exercise Sciences from Skidmore College and a Master’s degree in Public Health from SUNY Albany. Jordyn has had the opportunity to lead and contribute to several multidisciplinary research efforts; She has worked with St. Louis Children’s Hospital/Washington University’s School of Medicine, multiple primary care groups in upstate New York, the Research Foundation of SUNY Albany, and the New York State Department of Health. Although her interests are vast, Jordyn is most passionate about decreasing minority health disparities in pursuit of equitable health outcomes in populations of color. Her current research interests include health priorities and communications in Black populations. Little known facts: Jordyn played (and coached) college basketball and now spends her extra energy rollerblading, cooking, boxing, and exploring the intricacies of web design.
