Associate Professor, Social Work

Dr. Moya's scholarly work spans the public health and macro practice areas, where she has conducted funded research. Areas of specialization are health, participatory action research and social work. Eva has conducted research on knowledge, attitudes and practices in tuberculosis; TB stigma; HIV/AIDS; advocacy; Photovoice; intimate partner violence; sexual and reproductive health; and homelessness. Her research is considered innovative and can be replicated by others. Examples include the validation of the TB Stigma Scale with Mexican populations which led to the incorporation of the scales in the first Knowledge, Attitudes and Practice (KAP) in Tuberculosis in Mexico study (2010-11). The findings of the KAP in TB Study in Mexico were presented to the leadership of the National TB Program in Mexico in 2011. The findings of the study informed Mexico's TB national education strategy and produced four 10-minute Spanish educational programs on DVDs for clinicians’, health professionals’, and the public's use. Dr. Moya is particularly interested in these three cross-cutting themes: Cross-cultural competency; social and behavioral health sciences and transnational social work studies. Her other interests are as follows:
(1) The amplification of community-based participatory research methods like Photovoice and narratives to provide insight and perspectives in social work, resilience, positive stigma and empowerment to inform practice and policy;
(2) The development and implementation of health-related interventions and practices to ameliorate stigma.
(3) Empowerment interventions to mitigate the emotional and physical impact of intimate partner violence on migrant, mobile populations' research.
(4) Homelessness and community engaged scholarship.
