Dr. Prochaska is a population health scientist with training in social and environmental epidemiology, social and behavioral health principles, and health disparities. His interests lie in understanding the pathogenic and salutogenic
features within neighborhoods, communities, and other populations that drive positive and negative health and health-related outcomes and health disparities. These include social, political, and environmental sources of health risk and
protective factors, as well as behaviors related to health promotion. My application of quantitative and mixed-methods research, action-based research, geographic information systems (GIS), and systems thinking provides a broad range
of tools for understanding these issues, as well as translation of findings generated through these research approaches to a broad array of audiences. I have previous experience teaching broad academic audiences on these topics, as well
as on areas related to health disparities, social and environmental determinants of health, and dissemination and implementation research. This experience includes leading formal graduate courses, guest lecturing, one-on-one mentoring
and training, community-engaged dissemination efforts, and other educational and dissemination modalities.
