    Hafifa Siddiq, PhD, MSN, RN is a nurse scientist and community-engaged health services researcher. Her research focuses on social determinants of health, mental health and psychosocial wellbeing in under-resourced populations. Dr. Siddiq examines the role of forced displacement, post-migration stressors, and social isolation on health outcomes among immigrants and refugees, particularly older adults. She applies a biopsychosocial framework using community participatory and critical race theory principles to her research. Her community involvement spans over two decades of local volunteer work at Federally Qualified Health Centers in South Los Angeles to working with a non-profit organization serving asylum seekers at the US-Mexico Border. She provides health education on mental health in community settings and on secondary traumatic stress for refugee service providers. Dr. Siddiq is passionate about impactful community-based research, policy advocacy, mentorship and training future clinicians, and re-imaging how mental health care is integrated within health systems and across community settings.
