Christian Thrasher came to the Morehouse School of Medicine in 2003 when Dr. David Satcher left government after serving as our nation’s 16th Surgeon General. In this capacity, he worked to advance the recommendations set forth in the Surgeon General’s Call to Action to Promote Sexual Health and Responsible Sexual Behavior (2001). After several years of working to successfully identify strategies to engage multiple diverse viewpoints to advance the national dialogue on sexual health, Christian became the founding Director of the Center of Excellence for Sexual Health (2006 – 2015) within the Satcher Health Leadership Institute at the Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia. Christian has worked in the field of sexual health for more than 20 years. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Communications and Psychology from the State University College of Fredonia in New York and his Master of Arts degree in Human Sexuality, Marriage and Family Relations from New York University. Christian also studied at the University of Amsterdam’s Institute on Sexuality, Culture and Society and has completed much of the required coursework toward his Ph.D. in Human Sexuality Education from Widener University. Christian lives with his wife Leslie and their two daughters Stella and Sophia. Christian enjoys traveling the world, eating good food, exercising his body, mind, and spirit, and most importantly living life just for today!
