Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Chantel Sloan joined the faculty in the BYU Department of Health Science after completing a postdoctoral program at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. She received her Doctorate from Dartmouth College, and her bachelor's degree from BYU-Hawaii. Dr. Sloan has researched a variety of topics in respiratory health, genetics and applications in Medical Geography.
 Teaching Interests
Dr. Sloan is currently teaching HLTH 311: Infectious Disease Prevention and Control and Hlth 482:Medical Geography.
 Research Interests
Respiratory Syncytial Virus induced bronchiolitis is a major cause of infant hospitalizations in the United States. Dr. Sloan studies the epidemiology of RSV using different health administration databases. She is also interested in the impact of air pollution on respiratory health and susceptibility to viral infections.
