Naomi M. Hall, Ph.D., MPH
Dr. Hall is a social psychologist focusing on the bidirectional connections between psychosocial and sociocultural correlates of sexual decision-making and behavior across the developmental lifespan of African Americans. Academic and professional endeavors have always reflected my continued interest in the role of culture and society in health and behavior. The most recent research agenda has focused on the development and testing of culturally responsive prevention and intervention models for sexually transmitted infections, including HIV.
She is an Assistant Professor of Psychology in the Behavioral Sciences and Social Work department, and Principal Investigator of two studies examining sexual behavior in African-American communities in the greater Winston-Salem area. Her experience and knowledge of public health, coupled with training and research in psychology, allows for a successful marriage of breadth and depth in the area of social determinants of health and health disparities.
