Adjunct Lecturer

Charlotte McCullagh

Charlotte McCullagh studies HIV/AIDS and public health policy in the United States. Her research focuses primarily on older adult populations and underserved men who have sex with men (MSM). She has practical/therapeutic experience with the LGBTQA+ community.

Now in her last year of the doctoral program at Columbia, she has been working with the Social Intervention Group. Since 2015, she has been a lecturer at NYU Silver School of Social Work, where she has taught Social Welfare Policy. 

Ms. McCullagh has published studies on the impact of harm reduction on HIV rates cross-nationally, the impact of social support on health outcomes among Black MSM with HIV/AIDS, and the psychometric properties of measures that detect substance use problems among key populations at risk for HIV. Currently she is working on a mixed-method study that seeks to determine how older adults living with HIV/AIDS “age well,” with the aim of translating these findings into interventions.

Ms. McCullagh holds an BSc and MSc in Anthropology from University College London. She received her MSW from New York University.
