18) #BlackHistoryMonth Dr. Joyce Balls-Berry

Dr. Joyce (Joy) Balls-Berry, PhD is Associate Professor of Neurology at Washington University School of Medicine and Core Leader for the newly established Health Disparities and Equity Core in the Knight ADRC.

Dr. Ball-Berry’s primary research focus is evaluating the application of community-engaged research principles in diverse populations and how it can be applied to increase health equity. Dr. Balls-Berry has also focused her research on determining the best approaches for inclusion of diverse populations into health research. This work includes evaluating recruitment of community participants and determining the best methods for translating research findings. I am indebted to Dr. Balls-Berry for working so tirelessly with me to bring our documentary In Our Right Mind to Washington University Knight ADRC where it lived on their website for more than a year.
