About Nicole A. Vaughn

My research interests include using community based participatory research methods to address chronic disease prevention (diabetes, overweight, obesity) in underserved and urban settings with ethnic minority adults and youth (i.e., African American). Additionally, I am focused on identifying evidence-based and evidence-informed practices to disseminate and implement in these settings.

My research includes working with community partners to implement evidence-based and evidence informed strategies in their local settings (i.e., churches, after school settings, community centers) to promote healthy lifestyles. Additionally, I have training in health behavior strategies and trauma-informed practices for youth and families. My dissemination and implementation research projects are at the intersection of public health, health promotion, health education and community/industry partnerships.
