Professional Summary

I have over 20 years of experience in recruiting African Americans into clinical trials.  From past experience as a certified diabetes educator (CDE) and working on multiple, multicenter clinical trials at Ohio State University such as Osteoarthritis initiative (OAI), Women Health Initiative (WHI) and Program Director of the Prevention of Diabetes in African Americans Program (PRE-DAAM), which was a 5 year NIH funded research study, that recruited and maintained over 200 African Americans over a 5 year study period.  I have extensive expertise in assisting underserved and minority persons with diabetes to manage their disease. I have worked directly in developing, implemented and executing diabetes self management education and support programs in hospital and community settings.
 
My research has focused on the metabolic characterization of African Americans  and (blacks) with family history of type 2 diabetes and the ethnic differences in insulin secretion,  insulin sensitivity (SI) and glucose-dependent glucose disposal (SG). I am also interested in studying the metabolic correlates and nontraditional metabolic risk factors that lead to the development of type 2 diabetes, prediabetes and cardiovascular disease in African-American women. Specifically, I am interested in studying the effect of lifestyle intervention (aerobic exercise and diet-induced weight loss) on lowering risk factors for type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cognitive impairment. 
 
My current research focus is a natural progression of my interest in risk factors for type 2 diabetes. It extends my compassion for understanding the risk factors for type 2 diabetes and examining nonpharmacological interventions to prevent them.  My current research, focuses on the relationship between cognitive funciton and prediabetes.  In a pilot study, I found that older adults with prediabetes had lower cognitive functing scores when compared to those with normal glucose tolerance.  In addition, African Americans had higher hemoglobin A1cand lower cognitive function scores when compare to Whites,   These may all contribute to higher prevalence of cognitive dysfunction and type 2 diabetes in this population.  Thus, in a new proposal I will to examine the benifits of a lifestyle intervention program, specially tailored to older adults with mild cognitive impairment  on hemoglobin A1c and cognitive function.  I hope to demonstrate that lifestyle (increase in physical actiivity, healthy die) can possible help to improve cognitve fucntion as well as glucose tolerance. We will also explore changes in depressive symptoms and health related quality of life indicators that have also been associated with mild cognitive

Research and Practice Interests

My research interests involve the examination of the ethnic differences in the development of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cognitive function.  I have established my research focus area aimed at increasing our understanding of risk factiors associated with prediabetes and cognitive function of older adults. I am currently examining the benifits of lifestyle changes on cognitive function in older adutls. I am currently examining the benefits of lifestyle changes on cognitive funciton in older adults with prediabets and mild cognitive impairment.  In addition, I am also interested in examining the role of lifestyle (dietary changes, increasing in physical activity) in inprovements in cognitive funciton in young adults with hypertension as well as older adutls with prediabetes. I hope to develop programs that are culturally relevant and applicable to the populations they are meant to serve.
