Dr. Cooper Receives K24 Award

The Welch Center congratulates Dr. Lisa Cooper, who recently won a Mid-career Investigator Award in Patient-Oriented Research in Cardiovascular Disparities (K24), from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI). Dr. Cooper has conducted cutting-edge patient-oriented research regarding healthcare disparities and patient-physician relationships over the past 10 years. Her work explores barriers and mechanisms for disparities and tests interventions to eliminate them. Specific aims for this award are: 1) to build a multi-disciplinary center devoted to patient-oriented research in cardiovascular health disparities at Johns Hopkins; 2) to recruit and mentor junior clinician investigators in the conduct of rigorous patient-oriented cardiovascular health disparities research; and 3) to develop and test novel methods of measuring racial and ethnic discrimination and its impact on cardiovascular healthcare and outcomes.
