Her Story

As an early-career researcher freshly out of her postdoc and in her role as director of the Deaf Health Laboratory, a laboratory in the Research Center on Culture and Language at Rochester Institute of Technology's National Technical Institute of the Deaf, Dr. Tiffany Panko is passionate about reproductive justice, especially for women like herself, who are deaf and use American Sign Language. A native of Rochester, NY, she was born to deaf parents and like them, she stayed in the area after college. She gives back to the Rochester community whenever she can, coordinating health education/outreach or bringing home-made treats to the office. From her time as a Research Assistant in the Deaf Studies Lab to working as a Health Project Coordinator at the National Center for Deaf Health Research, Tiffany has extensive experience in public health. Tiffany holds a Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences degree and an MBA from the Rochester Institute of Technology. She earned her Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Rochester. When she isn’t working, she is doing yoga, cheering for the Green Bay Packers, or experimenting in the kitchen.
