Ann Rojas-Cheatham holds a BA from Oberlin College in Environmental Studies and Latin American Studies, an MPH in Community Health and a PhD in social epidemiology both from The University of California, Berkeley. Ann has more than twenty five years of
community based public health experience. Her experience extends from community based participatory research (CBPR) and popular education. She has advanced multiple successful research and interventions related to refugee and immigrant health, workplace health, climate change and women’s health. 

Ann’s research on the nail salon industry as related to climate change was published as a white paper and a book chapter. This research was presented at over 200 venues in the U.S. over the course of two years. This groundbreaking research paved a way for future actions taken in order to mitigate climate change to take low income women’s health into consideration. Her work on toxins in lipsticks and CBPR in the Cambodian Community was also published. She is the author of a chapter in the book, Community Based Participatory Research for Health (Minkler, 2010), entitled, Community-Based Participatory Research with Cambodian Girls in Long Beach, Ca.

Currently, Ann is an organizational consultant for Asian Refugees United and Faculty member of the Health Education Department at City College San Francisco. She also serves on the City of Berkeley Public Health Commission.
