    Research Interests

    Dr. Marianne Felice has a long history of clinical research in issues related to adolescent health issues with a particular focus on adolescent sexuality, teen pregnancy, and adolescent sexual abuse. Dr. Felice is also interested in cross-cultural health care topics particularly as this issue relates to the provision of optimal health care for recently immigrated adolescents.

    Dr. Felice has had continual funding since 1986 from the federal Office of Adolescent Pregnancy Programs in the Department of Health and Human Services that has enabled her to develop adolescent pregnancy prevention programs in three states. In Worcester, Dr. Felice developed the Worcester Teen Tot Connection that provides comprehensive, interdisciplinary health care for teen mothers and their infants in order to reduce repeat pregnancies within two years of the first birth, insure that all the infants are immunized by 2 years of age, and to facilitate the return to school of each young mother. In this endeavor, Dr. Felice has worked closely with Dr. Dianne Elfenbein and multiple community social agencies.

    Dr. Felice is also interested in the racial disparity of infant mortality and has begun to investigate this topic with the help of many local agencies and the Department of Public Health on the local and state level.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
