Biography:

Dr. Beth Glenn is an associate professor of Health Policy and Management in the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health. Her main research interests are in the area of cancer prevention and control among ethnic minority and underserved populations. She serves as an investigator on a number of ongoing projects, including a CDC-funded project aimed at facilitating community-based cancer control research in Los Angeles County and nationally, a NIH-funded liver cancer prevention intervention conducted in Korean churches, a NIH-funded obesity control intervention at worksites and a CDC-funded project aimed at disseminating evidence-based strategies to integrate physical activity and healthy nutrition into organizational routine. She has also led a number of studies including a series of projects focused on breast cancer among South Asian women, a qualitative study aimed at understanding perceived benefits and barriers to genetic evaluation and testing for breast cancer risk among minority women and a survey assessing skin cancer prevention strategies among a state-wide sample of children at increased risk for melanoma due to family history. In addition to her research activities, Glenn, a licensed psychologist, has served as a clinical consultant for the Simms/Mann-UCLA Center for Integrative Oncology.
