Malcolm Bevel received his Ph.D. in Epidemiology and was a Grace Jordan McFadden Professors Program scholar at the University of South Carolina. He uses quantitative and qualitative methods to promote healthy lifestyle interventions in the African American community. Specifically, his interests are environmental and social determinants of health (e.g. residential racial segregation, food deserts/swamps) and how they impact the ability of the community to access resources for living a healthy lifestyle. His research includes the community-based participatory research (CBPR) approach to combating various chronic disease outcomes (e.g. CVD, cancer). He is interested in utilizing the CBPR approach to implement pragmatic clinical trials involving gardening (personal or community) in order to improve the quality of life of African Americans in the Southeast and nationwide. Dr. Bevel is also a proud member of Omega Psi Phi, Fraternity Inc.
