Ingrid J. Hall, PhD, MPH
Ingrid J. Hall, PhD, MPH, is an epidemiologist and team lead in the Division of Cancer Prevention and Control's Epidemiology and Applied Research Branch. Dr. Hall's current research focus is in the area of minority health, particularly finding culturally relevant ways to publicize the need for participation in cancer screening and early detection by minority populations.
She leads the African-American Women and Mass Media (AAMM) study, a pilot radio campaign to increase African-American women's breast cancer awareness and mammography screening through local breast cancer and control programs. The AAMM uses the testimonies of local African-American breast cancer survivors in radio advertisements to communicate messages about the importance of mammography and the availability of no-cost screening services through the BCCP.
