Event Description
Lisa Cooper, MD
Bloomberg Distinguished Professor, Johns Hopkin University
Bloomberg School of Public Health
Dr. Cooper’s research program focuses on patient-centered strategies for improving outcomes and overcoming racial and ethnic disparities in healthcare. She has conducted several observational studies to explore and better define barriers (e.g., patient attitudes, beliefs, and preferences) to equitable care across racial and ethnic groups and mechanisms for disparities in health status and healthcare (e.g., patient-physician communication, race discordance between patients and physicians). Dr. Cooper was the principal investigator of two randomized trials [funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) of interventions to improve quality of care and outcomes for patients with hypertension and depression in primary care settings and the PI of a Center for Population Health and Health Disparities -- The Johns Hopkins Center to Eliminate Cardiovascular Disparities -- funded by the NHLBI. She is currently Co-PI of a UH2/UH3 grant from NHLBI (Comparative Effectiveness of Health System Versus a Multilevel intervention to Reduce Hypertension Disparities). She also has a Mid-Career Investigator Award for Patient-Oriented Research and Mentoring in Cardiovascular Health Disparities from the NHLBI. Dr. Cooper’s research links patient and clinician attitudes and behaviors with health outcomes; her work continues to inform the training of physicians and the institutions in which they practice to deliver high quality, equitable care to increasingly diverse patient populations.
