Heather Marie Gardiner

Associate Professor
Social and Behavioral Sciences
Office of Community-Engaged Research and Practice
1101 W Montgomery Ave


Heather Gardiner is an associate professor of social and behavioral sciences in Temple University’s College of Public Health. Dr. Gardiner directs the Health Disparities Research Lab and the Office of Community Engaged Research and Practice, which leads growth of the college’s interdisciplinary community engagement activities. She is a mixed-methodologist with advanced training and experience with both qualitative and quantitative research designs and methodologies, including the development and implementation of protocols for in-depth and focus group interviews, inductive and deductive qualitative coding schemas and processes, structured and semi-structured surveys, and advanced statistical methods (e.g., structural equation modeling, multivariable analyses). Her program of research lies at the intersection of interpersonal health communication and organ and tissue donation and transplantation. Across these areas of research, her primary goals have been to improve the organ and tissue donation process in the United States, reduce transplant inequities, and increase access to transplantation for marginalized communities. She has a strong record of externally funded research to increase access to transplants for underserved minority populations, for which community engagement remains a core component. Dr. Gardiner has served as principal or co-investigator on over 20 externally funded grants, representing over $15 million in funding. For these projects, she has developed scripts for simulated patient-provider encounters; casted and trained actors; designed curricula for web-based educational/training programs; and led the implementation and evaluation of those programs. She has served as primary instructor for 12 communication and public health courses, delivering guest lectures and workshops on various topics and over 100 invited or peer-reviewed oral and poster presentations, and (co)authoring 50 scientific manuscripts. She has also supervised or advised over 40 undergraduate and graduate students; mentored postdoctoral scholars, junior faculty and medical residents; and currently supervises a staff of seven.

Very early in her career, she realized the importance of ensuring the research process and resulting products are relevant and of value to the intended recipients—the stakeholders. Over the last 15 years, she has developed a deep passion for community engagement and community-engaged research. She has engaged relevant stakeholders (patients, lay community members, leadership from faith-, health- and community-based organizations) at various levels of participation—from advising capacities to authentic partners in the research enterprise.
