The research focus of Stanley Hooker, Ph.D., is using the tools of genetic epidemiology to identify the genetic, environmental, behavioral and accessibility factors that contribute to disparities in treatment and health outcomes in admixed populations, particularly those of West African descent. His hope is, through the identification of the contributing risk and protective factors, we can then inform and work with members of the community, physicians, private and governmental institutions, and policy makers to effect the change necessary to reduce health disparities.
