Dr. Hudson Takes on Disparities
You simply cannot publish Healthyblackmen.org or any significant publication on black men’s health and not include health disparities and social determinants of health. Our amazing team of Contributors just got even more stellar with the addition of a scholar who gets it. He really gets it.
Dr. Darrell Hudson is an assistant professor with the Brown School of Social Work and a faculty scholar with the Institute of Public Health at Washington University in St. Louis. While he’s at the early stages of a career, Dr. Hudson is dedicated to the study and elimination of racial/ethnic and socioeconomic disparities in health. Most critically, anyone who knows Dr. Hudson knows his commitment to his work is only matched by his gracious nature of working across disciplines to understand disparities at all levels.
Dr. Hudson’s research agenda addresses the role of social determinants of health and his current work is largely concerned with how socioeconomic position and intergenerational social mobility affects health across different racial/ethnic groups in the United States. Prior to his faculty appointment, he completed a postdoctoral fellowship with the Kellogg Health Scholars Program (Multidisciplinary Track) at the University of California, San Francisco/Berkeley site. Dr. Hudson completed his doctoral studies at the University of Michigan School of Public Health, where he also received his M.P.H. and he earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Morehouse College.
Healthyblackmen.org is pleased to welcome one of the future stars of public health research to the team. But we think he’s pretty cool, already.
