About Danielle Davidov
Dr. Davidov is an associate professor in the Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences and holds an adjunct appointment in the WVU Department of Emergency Medicine. Her research involves using qualitative and mixed methods to develop and evaluate complex interventions in community-based, academic, and clinical settings. In particular, she is interested in the successful adoption and implementation of strategies to improve system-level responses to trauma and violence. She has served as qualitative lead and consultant on multiple large-scale, federally funded projects with international and domestic interdisciplinary teams, leveraging survivor and stakeholder engagement to cultivate meaningful change in both research and practice. Statewide, her work has focused on rural health disparities related to the intersection of trauma, substance abuse, and mental health. She is currently serving as co-principal investigator on an evaluation to improve services for West Virginia youth with serious emotional and behavioral needs. She also serves as research lead for the PCORI-funded WV AWARE (Asking Women About Relationship Experiences) project, which seeks to improve screening and assessment for intimate partner violence in healthcare settings. This project won the 2021 Purple Ribbon Award from the West Virginia Coalition Against Domestic Violence for demonstrating outstanding commitment to the collaborative work of ending violence against women in West Virginia. Within the School of Public Health, she mentors undergraduate, master’s level, and doctoral students and teaches courses related to intervention design, qualitative methods, social determinants of health, and public health prevention. She undertakes service and engagement activities that aim to enhance the health and well-being of women and underserved groups in her home state of West Virginia.
