Dr. Okechukwu’s research interests include the translation of community-based interventions into practice, occupational determinants of health and health behaviors, methods of intervention design and evaluation, and the contribution of work-related social determinants to health disparities. She has especially focused her attention on tobacco use among working class populations—for example, the links between racial discrimination and smoking and the effectiveness of workplace-based smoking-cessation programs. For her future research agenda, she plans to explore other issues that affect the health of working-class populations, using transdisciplinary approaches and both observational and intervention research methods.
