Dr. Jennifer A. Campbell is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin in the Division of General Internal Medicine. Dr. Campbell completed her Master’s in Public Health from the California State University in Long Beach and her PhD in Public Health with an emphasis on Community and Behavioral Health Promotion from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. Dr. Campbell is a trained implementation scientist whose area of research is largely focused on behavioral medicine as it relates to chronic disease management and integration of care for patients with complex medical conditions. Dr. Campbell’s specific interest is in identifying the barriers to care that occur across levels of influence for vulnerable populations (ethnic minorities, low socioeconomic status, impoverished) with diabetes. Her research is focused on intervention development for type 2 diabetes from a holistic standpoint, accounting for multi-level influences. Dr. Campbell’s training fosters a unique approach to improving health equity by integrating health services and public health perspectives with an emphasis on mixed methods and implementation science to reduce health disparities in the burden of type 2 diabetes nationally and globally. Her current work is focused on understanding the role of multidimensional adversity and the intersection of individual, community, and health system factors on health and quality of life for community dwelling adults with type 2 diabetes living within distressed inner cities. Dr. Campbell was recently awarded an NIH K01 to examine the effectiveness of cash transfers to address structural barriers impacting health at the individual level for adults with type 2 diabetes living within distressed urban environments.
