Biography

Evelyn King-Marshall, PhD, MPH is a research assistant professor in the Department of Behavioral and Community Health. Dr. King-Marshall received her MPH and PhD in Public Health from the University of Florida. Post MPH degree, she worked as a program manager for a state funded and county implemented Abstinence Only Sex Education Program. It was that experience that inspired her research interests; adolescent pregnancy and repeat pregnancy. During her PhD studies, she worked as a research coordinator investigating health disparities in adjuvant chemotherapy use among colorectal cancer patients and medical decision making. While she continues to work with the research team to investigate factors related to medical decision making and adjuvant chemotherapy she aspires to blend these experiences in her current research agenda.  Dr. King-Marshall’s personal research agenda has expanded to unplanned pregnancy prevention, maternal and child health, literacy, advocacy, and decision making. She is currently using qualitative research methods to investigate how health literacy relates to comprehension and uptake of family planning methods.
