Current HIV/AIDS-Related Research Activities:
My research focuses on methods to promote the adoption of evidence-based lung cancer control practices to achieve health equity. I have conducted lung cancer control observational studies and individual-level behavioral interventions in largely community-based settings that have prepared me to extend my work into personalized approaches to address lung cancer disparities in people living with HIV (PWH). My early research described decision-making about low-dose computed tomographic lung cancer screening and preferences for screening among Black or African Americans at high lung cancer risk. This work has illustrated the critical role of multi-level social determinants of health in motivation to stop smoking, access to services and use of lung screening. I am building a program of research aimed at addressing these multi-level factors to reduce disparities among minoritized and marginalized populations at high risk for developing lung cancer.
