    • Dr. Dorothy Faulkner is a trained chronic disease epidemiologist, who earned her MPH and PhD in epidemiologic science from the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) and the University of Michigan, respectively.  Her post-doctoral fellowship was completed at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) program.  Since she is a lifelong learner, she also earned a certificate in instructional design and a certification in project management. 

      Dr. Faulkner brings a broad range (a “tapestry”) of experiences to the table, from having worked as a research scientist and a director in the Federal government, pharmaceuticals, consulting, academia, and health care.  Her competencies include: writing research proposals and letter-contracts, publishing manuscripts, managing research projects, teaching, and designing surveys.  In fact, Dr. Faulkner helped design a number of high-profile surveys, including CDC’s Adult Tobacco Survey, and CDC’s Program Evaluation of the Distribution of Antimicrobial Agents to Prevent Anthrax. 

      Dr. Faulkner’s publications and interests have centered on social disparities in negative health behaviors (NHB’s).  She has published in a number of journals, including the Journal of the National Cancer Institute (JNCI) and Pediatrics.
