Bio Summary

Dr. Rogers is a Post-Doctoral Associate in the Cancer-Related Health Disparities Education and Career Development Program. His pre-doctoral training in applied mathematics and statistics, coupled with doctoral training in health education and behavior, provides a unique perspective for translating research findings into prevention methods among health care professionals, policy makers, and communities. Dr. Rogers’ research has described and advanced understanding of the male role norms, knowledge, attitudes, perceived subjective norms, and perceived barriers related to screening for colorectal cancer among young adult African-American men (ages 19-45). Currently, he is particularly interested in applying and translating his research for community health education and engagement; and contributing to solutions that address the complex underpinnings of inequalities in health, cancer, and healthcare in America.
