Dr. Cozier is currently an investigator on the Black Women’s Health Study (BWHS) and the BWHS Sarcoidosis Study at the Slone Epidemiology Center. Her research interests include social and genetic determinants of health in African-American women -- specifically, the influence of factors such as racism, neighborhood socioeconomic status, and genetics in the development of cancer, cardiovascular risk, and pulmonary (sarcoidosis) disease. Additional research interests include oral health, and the role that the faith community, particularly the black church, plays in health promotion/disease prevention efforts associated with HIV/AIDS, hypertension, and obesity.
