Dr. Sabrin Rizk is the first Bridge to the Faculty (B2F) Postdoctoral Research Scholar in the College of Applied Health Sciences. The B2F program is designed to attract and retain promising underrepresented postdoctoral scholars to UIC, with the goal of direct transition to tenure system faculty after two years.
Dr. Rizk is an OT who earned her PhD in Health Sciences from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. As a rising pediatric health services researcher, Dr. Rizk chose to complete her postdoctoral training phase in the Children’s Participation in Environment Research Lab (CPERL).
Dr. Rizk's program of research will center on understanding and mitigating disparities to educational services access for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), beginning in early childhood. To advance this research program, she is designing and launching new secondary analyses of national data to lay foundation for building programmatic lines of inquiry. Dr. Rizk has also been actively growing health services and implementation research engagement within a team science model, to acquire translatable methodological and lab management skills for this research program.
