Darrell J. Gaskin

Dr. Darrell J. Gaskin is the William C. and Nancy F. Richardson Professor in health policy and management at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and a professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Dr. Gaskin’s research focuses primarily on three areas – disparities in hospital quality, healthcare and cardiovascular disease risk factors.  His contribution to this literature is identifying and understanding the roles of place and contextual factors on the disparities.  He hopes his research will encourage policymakers to move beyond the patient-provider relationship and support community-level interventions to address disparities.
