Alumni Named HELI Scholars
Georgia Southern University Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health alumni, Drs. Raymona H. Lawrence, Nandi A. Marshall, and Krista D. Mincey, have been accepted into the 2013 cohort of the Health Equity Leadership Institute (HELI). Sponsored through a partnership with the Maryland Center for Health Equity at the University of Maryland School of Public Health and the Collaborative Center for Health Equity at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, HELI selects 30 Scholars (15 from within/15 from outside of Wisconsin) to participate in a week long ‘research boot camp’ focused on increasing the number of investigators engaged in health disparities/health equity research.
Dr. Raymona H. Lawrence, who graduated in December 2010, plans to focus her research on health inequities and disparities in rural, African American communities-especially as they relate to chronic diseases, such as sickle cell disease.
Dr. Nandi A. Marshall, who graduated in December 2012, plans to focus her research on community-based participatory research, public health services research, and their roles in addressing the social determinants of health.
Dr. Krista D. Mincey, who graduated in December 2011, plans to focus her research on the elements that affect Black men’s health such as masculinity, female influence, and the doctor/patient relationship.
