Jocelyne Boumosleh is currently an Assistant Professor of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the Faculty of Nursing & Health Sciences at NDU. Dr. Boumosleh’s major research interests include chronic disease epidemiology and prevention. She specifically works on health disparities, with a focus on population differences in the incidence, morbidity and mortality of common chronic diseases, as well as their risk factors. Dr. Boumosleh is also interested in the role that the interaction between genetic and environmental factors plays on disease susceptibility. Her recent research focuses on role of obesity in relation to metabolic abnormalities in PCOS women, a line of research that she started at UT Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas during her postdoctoral training. Her teaching concentration is in basic and advanced health, research methods as well as epidemiology and biostatistics courses.
