Lisa A. Cooper

Dr. Lisa Cooper, MD, MPH, is a Bloomberg Distinguished Professor of health, behavior and society at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and a professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. One of the first scientists to document disparities in the quality of relationships between physicians and patients from socially at-risk groups, she went on to design innovative interventions targeting physicians’ communication skills, patients’ self-management skills and healthcare organizations’ ability to address needs of populations experiencing health disparities. Dr. Cooper directs The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Equity, where her team works with stakeholders to alleviate racial and income disparities in social determinants and cardiovascular health outcomes.
