Lynn N. Ibekwe, PhD, MPH is a postdoctoral research fellow whose primary research interest is to reduce the disproportionate burden of cancer morbidity and mortality among Blacks and African Americans in the United States. To that end, she pursues research geared towards (1) documenting individual and contextual level determinants of racial and ethnic cancer-related disparities, including investigating racism as a fundamental cause of such disparities; (2) developing and testing culturally relevant cancer prevention and control interventions in community and clinical settings; and (3) using implementation science, through a health equity lens, to improve implementation of evidence-based interventions (EBIs) in real-world settings, including explicitly focusing on structural racism as a determinant of inequitable adoption, implementation, and sustainability of EBIs.
