My current research and scholarly interests focus on two areas, understanding and reducing chronic disease risks among adults using a socio-ecological approach, and public health workforce development. Within the area of chronic disease risk reduction I concentrate on reaching adult populations through worksite and community-based health promotion programs. Currently I lead a team of faculty members and students that coordinates HealthyUNCG, a health promotion program for 2,500 UNCG employees. In addition to its internal mission, HealthyUNCG is expanding its services into the North Carolina Triad community, offering new learning and research opportunities to students through community engagement. In recent years I was part of a team that included Drs. Mark Schulz and Bob Aronson that conducted a stroke risk assessment and reduction project in the NC Triad. This project was funded by the USDHHS Office of Minority Health and included institutional partners Forsyth Medical Center, The Moses H. Cone Health System, and North Carolina A&T State University. Several students have been part of this project and work continues to communicate our findings through professional presentations and published manuscripts. In addition to these areas of scholarship, and as a result of being a department head, I am exploring the ways in which organizational and leadership development can lead to more effective institutions of higher education. In this arena, I have been working with a business consultant to explore the links between administration and operations in universities. I am the current President of the Council of Accredited MPH Programs. CAMP promotes communication, networking and collaboration among accredited MPH Programs and creates linkages with public and private sector agencies. In particular, CAMP was developed to facilitate collaborative and consultative opportunities for public health programs with national and international agencies and to work cooperatively with other professional associations.
