Dr. Robinson holds a Masters in Social Work degree from Clark Atlanta University where she focused on the evaluation of social service programs and the delivery of social services within healthcare settings. In 2003, she earned her Ph.D. in Policy Analysis and Management from Cornell University concentrating in evaluation and health. Dr. Robinson's dissertation research utilized a mixed methods approach to examine barriers to minority participation in medical research as defined by racial/ethnic minority communities and health professionals. She went on to earn a Masters in Public Health with a concentration in Epidemiology/Biostatistics at George Washington University. Her research there focused on the role of underinsurance in the utilization of cancer screening among racial/ethnic minorities. Dr. Robinson later completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the National Cancer Institute where she continued her work examining the role of underinsurance in cancer screening and health behaviors. She has been involved in several program planning projects as well as a number of program evaluations. Her research interests include racial/ethnic inequalities in health, program planning and evaluation and the role of the Black Church in health promotion.
