LaPrincess C. Brewer, M.D., M.P.H., has a primary research focus in developing strategies to reduce and ultimately eliminate cardiovascular disease health disparities in racial and ethnic minority populations and in underserved communities through health promotion and community-based participatory research. Dr. Brewer also has special interest in increasing minority and women's participation in cardiovascular clinical trials through mobile health (mHealth) interventions. Additionally, she has published work on faith-based interventions for cardiovascular disease prevention, racial differences in weight maintenance and psychosocial factors influencing cardiovascular risk factors.
Dr. Brewer hopes that her research and behavioral interventions will help narrow the gap in exemplary cardiovascular health outcomes among underserved groups. She also seeks to better elucidate the social determinants of cardiovascular health and how they contribute to racial and ethnic disparities in cardiovascular disease. Ultimately, her comprehensive health promotion modalities and education tools can serve as a model for clinicians and public health practitioners to more effectively provide relevant health information to racial and ethnic minorities and women with the goal of achieving healthy lifestyle change.
