Protective Practices by People who Inject Drugs
Sarah Brothers, a PhD candidate in Sociology at Yale, will give a talk examining how people who inject drugs attempt to protect themselves and others from infection and overdose.

Sarah Brothers was awarded the 2018 YCSF Summer Graduate Fellowship.

Prior to beginning her doctoral work at Yale, she attended City College of San Francisco and then received her B.A. in Sociology with highest honors from University of California Berkeley.

Her dissertation, “Expertise, Gender, and Marginality: Assessing Protective Processes among People who Inject Drugs in the United States” examines how people who inject drugs protect themselves from overdose and infection.

She uses ethnographic observation and in-depth semi-structured interviews in two field sites, San Francisco California and New Haven Connecticut, to focus on three protective practices: overdose reversal, secondary syringe exchange (in which people distribute unused syringes to peers and collect used syringes), and assisted injection (when one person injects another person).
