ABOUT DR. DHYMSY OWENS

     As a community health psychologist, my work focuses on the importance of cultural and social factors to health promotion and risk prevention. My current interests lean towards (1) disparities in health & health education, (2) resilience, and (3) the experience of acculturation and assimilation as they relate to metabolic and sexual/reproductive health.

         I aspire to use my research to promote health & well-being through intervention and community outreach, and have contributed to the development and implementation of campaigns and initiatives at varying levels of community.

   To find out more about my current and previous research efforts check out the Projects tab, or click What's Happening for a list of upcoming conferences and community events.

        I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Psychology Program at the University of the District of Columbia (Washington D.C). In my down time, I enjoy hanging out with family, catching some sunshine, and getting lost in a good book.
