Professional Summary

  • I have over 20 years of experience in recruiting African Americans into clinical trials.  From past experience as a certified diabetes educator (CDE) and working on multiple, multicenter clinical trials at Ohio State University such as Osteoarthritis initiative (OAI), Women Health Initiative (WHI) and Program Director of the Prevention of Diabetes in African Americans Program (PRE-DAAM), which was a 5 year NIH funded research study, that recruited and maintained over 200 African Americans over a 5 year study period.  I have extensive expertise in assisting underserved and minority persons with diabetes to manage their disease. I have worked directly in developing, implemented and executing diabetes self management education and support programs in hospital and community settings.
     
    My research has focused on the metabolic characterization of African Americans  and (blacks) with family history of type 2 diabetes and the ethnic differences in insulin secretion,  Insulin Sensitivity (SI) and glucose-dependent glucose disposal (SG). I am also interested in studying the metabolic correlates and nontraditional metabolic risk factors that lead to the development of type 2 diabetes and CVD in African-American women. Specifically, I am interested in studying the effect of aerobic exercise and diet-induced weight loss on HDL functionality measured by paraoxonase enzyme activity (PON1). Recently, I have demonstrated that African American women have comparable serum HDL cholesterol and lower levels as white women, but the functionality of the PON1 was 50% lower.  I believe understanding the role of HDL functionality on the vasculature (structure and function) could provide (1) new insights into the mechanisms of the athero-cardioprotective effects of exercise and diet-induced weight loss in African American women compared to white American women, and (2) the potential to develop novel and therapeutic armamentarium to improve HDL as a nontraditional approach to preventing CVD.
     
    My current research focus is a natural progression of my interest in risk factors for type 2 diabetes. It extends my compassion for understanding the risk factors for type 2 diabetes and examining nonpharmacological interventions to prevent them.  It is well known that African Americans, especially women have lower participation rates in physical activity, have higher rates of type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance and hypertension, which all increase with aging.  These may all contribute to higher prevalence of cognitive dysfunction and type 2 diabetes in this population.  Thus, in the PREvention of COgnitive Dysfunction with Exercise (PRECODE) Program I wish to examine which frequency of aerobic exercise would be associated with improving cognitive function in older African American adults (65-80 years)  with prediabetes and mild cognitive impairment residing in low-income residential housing.  We will use the Silver Sneaker Program, a low impact aerobic exercise program, originally designed for seniors to increase cardiorespiratory fitness and prevent falls.  To achieve the goals of the current study, we will randomize 195 African Americans into two levels of AEx (30 minutes 3x/week vs. 30 minutes 5x/week) compared to Health Education only (HE) (control group) for 13 and 26 weeks (primary outcome) and 52 weeks (sustainability). We hypothesize that the frequency of weekly aerobic exercise participation will improve cognitive function; prevent progression of cognitive impairment and the selected biomarkers associated with prediabetes and mild cognitive impairment in older AAs living in low-income senior housing. We will also explore changes in depressive symptoms and health related quality of life indicators that have also been associated with mild cognitive

Research/Clinical Interests

  • My researcher interested are in the metabolic characterization of African Americans with family history of type 2 diabetes and the ethnic differences in Insulin Sensitivity (SI) and glucose-dependent glucose disposal (SG). I am also interested in studying the metabolic correlates (glucose, insulin, lipids/lipoprotiens, inflammatory markers) and nontraditional metabolic risk factors that lead to the development of prediabetes, type 2 diabetes and CVD in African-American women. Specifically, I am interested in examining the benefits of lifestyle intervention (aerobic exercise and diet-induced weight loss) on these metabolic correlates. Recently, I have demonstrated that African American women have comparable serum HDL cholesterol levels as white women, but the functionality (measured by paraoxonase enzyme (PON1) was 50% lower.  I believe understanding the role of HDL functionality on the vasculature (structure and function) could provide (1) new insights into the mechanisms of the athero-cardioprotective effects of exercise and diet-induced weight loss in African American women compared to white American women, and (2) the potential to develop novel and therapeutic armamentarium to improve HDL as a nontraditional approach to preventing CVD.
