Katrina Walsemann is an Associate Professor of Health Promotion, Education, and Behavior and Director of the Carolina Consortium on Health, Inequalities, and Populations at the University of South Carolina. She earned her Ph.D. from the University of Michigan and was a NIA post-doctoral fellow at the University of Michigan’s Population Studies Center. Her research aims to understand how social inequities influence health across the life course.
