Assistant Professor and Field Director

Biography

Dr. Hall is an assistant professor and Director of Field Education. She has published research related to health disparities, palliative care and behavioral health. She has generated over $4 million in federal grants for the university. Those grants, from Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), address the shortage of behavioral health workers in medically underserved rural and urban areas. She has also been co-PI of federal grants from SAMHSA and DHHS. She is currently PI of a HRSA Behavioral Health Workforce Development Grant.

Because many chronic conditions of underrepresented populations have components that are both biological and social, Dr. Hall has expanded her research agenda to social epigenetics by collaborating with multidisciplinary teams in order to contribute to interventions that reduce health disparities - from biological and social perspectives. Currently she is working on a team that consists of an epidemiologist and other disciplines to explore the connection between obesity and the use of antibiotics among minority populations. As a researcher and social worker, Dr. Hall possesses knowledge and awareness essential to combining biological and social research to reduce health disparities research across populations and geographical regions. She has published several peer-reviewed journal articles, books chapters, and newsletters and conducted national and international numerous peer-reviewed research conference presentations. Some of her published work can be found at www.ncsu.edu/library and academia.edu. Dr. Hall is interested in multinational work and had partnerned with researchers from Cuba and Israel. She is curently engaged in interdisciplinary research with researchers from USA, UK, Australia and Brazil.

Dr. Hall’s direct social work practice experience includes public health, child welfare and program development. She worked for Wake County Human Services and Wake Technical Community College several years before joining NC State University.

Teaching and Research Interests

Dr. Hall is trained and experienced in quantitative and qualitative methodologies. She uses these methods discretely and is skilled at combining them when mixed methods are required to conduct the best possible research. She is particularly skilled at including populations that are often left out of medical and social research. Dr. Hall worked on a team that published quantitative findings from a large health literacy study among diverse populations. She has also conducted research using smaller samples as well as case studies. She is a member of Black Academics and Scholars (BARS), and NC Scholars Strategy Network.

Projects

Dr. Hall is currently PI of $1.9 million HRSA grant and co-PI of $1.6 million HRSA grant. She is currently a researcher on an epigenetic study where she will examine the connection between gestational use of antibiotics and obesity as well as social influencers.
