April 26, 2019 - Georgia Southern University Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health (JPHCOPH) Assistant Professor Tilicia Mayo-Gamble, Ph.D., has been accepted into the 2019 Programs to Increase Diversity Among Individuals Engaged in Health-Related Research (PRIDE). She will be a part of the Functional and Translational Genomics of Blood Disorder Program.

“It is an honor to be selected for a prestigious program that has groomed underserved researchers to make strides in biomedical research involving blood disorders,” said Mayo-Gamble. “I am also grateful that one of the PRIDE mentors is also the JPHCOPH’s Associate Dean for Public Health Practice and Research, Dr. Joseph Telfair.  Through his mentorship and the support of my department, I am confident that I will excel in the fellowship program. I take pride in having this opportunity to join a cadre of public health researchers who are making a difference in lives of those impacted by sickle cell disease.”

PRIDE is an all-expense-paid summer institute, research education and mentoring initiative sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. PRIDE works to broaden the demographic profile of biomedical research by training junior researchers from underrepresented backgrounds to advance their scientific careers and become more competitive for external research funding in heart, lung, blood and sleep disorders. Candidates for this program receive two years of training through two summer institutes, mid-year networking events and research visits with their program mentor.

Mayo-Gamble is an assistant professor in the Department of Health Policy and Community Health. Her research focuses include implementing community engagement methods, health communication, health behavior, chronic disease self-management, sickle cell disease and patient-centered care.

The mission of JPHCOPH is to improve health, eliminate health disparities, and health inequities of rural communities and underserved populations globally through excellence in teaching, public health workforce development, research, scholarship, professional service and community engagement.
