Ingrid J. Hall, PhD, MPH, is an epidemiologist and team lead in the Division of Cancer Prevention and Control in CDC’s National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP). 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 the local breast cancer and control programs (BCCP). The AAMM uses local African American women’s testimonies in radio advertisements to communicate messages about the importance of mammography and the availability of no-cost screening services through the BCCP.
