Dr. Latrica Best

Assistant Professor of Pan-African Studies and Sociology

Dr. Latrica Best came to the University of Louisville in 2010 as an assistant professor of Pan-African Studies and Sociology.  Prior to joining the faculty at University of Louisville, she completed a National Institute on Aging postdoctoral fellowship in Gerontology at the University of Southern California's Andrus Gerontology Center. Dr. Best holds a Ph.D. in Sociology and Demography (with a Gerontology minor) from The Pennsylvania State University.  Her general research interests are race and gender disparities in health and aging.  Using large, population-level data, my most current research explores the impact of psychosocial factors on race/ethnic differences in diabetes and hypertension.

Dr. Best is very excited to join this thriving community, and looks forward to contributing to its growth.
