Ingrid J. Hall, PhD, MPH

Ingrid J. Hall, PhD, MPH, is an epidemiologist 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 led the African American Women and Mass Media (AAMM) study, which used radio and print media to make more women aware of the importance of getting mammograms to find breast cancer early. The campaign also sought to increase use of CDC’s National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) screening services among African American women aged 40 to 64. More recently she has undertaken work to ensure that prior users of NBCCEDP breast cancer screening services make a smooth transition to Medicare screening upon reaching 65 years of age.

Dr. Hall has a long history of published work in the area of prostate cancer decision making and spearheaded the organization and coordination of the State of the Science Conference on Active Surveillance in the Management of Localized Prostate Cancer convened in 2010. She currently oversees studies developing an interactive online educational tool for prostate cancer treatment choices as well as support materials for newly diagnosed men who choose active surveillance.
