Anna Lee, Ph.D.
Health Disparities and Interpersonal Decision-Making
Dr. Anna Lee is an Assistant Professor of Psychology in the Department of Behavioral Sciences and Social Work. My research interests can be summarized within the following tracks: health disparity research and psychosocial factors that influence interpersonal decision-making. Two health disparities of particular interest are obesity and breast cancer because of the disproportionate impact these health issues have on African American women. In addition to an interest in obesity and breast cancer, I am interested in individual differences among African Americans on body image and satisfaction as related to black identity and acculturation. I am also interested in psychosocial factors that influence decision-making in interpersonal relationships. Specifically, I am interested in identifying and examining psychosocial variables which may influence African American young adult decision-making with regards to marriage, family and parenting.
