Former Organization:

Stephanie Fowler, Ph.D., M.P.H., is a Cancer Prevention Fellow in the Office of the Associate Director withinin the Behavioral Research Program of the Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences. She earned her M.A. (2009) and Ph.D. (2013) in Experimental Social Psychology from the University of Toledo. Dr. Fowler also earned a Master of Public Health with a concentration in health policy (2014) from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Dr. Fowler's research incorporates methodologies from the disciplines of applied epidemiology, psychology, environmental health, and policy. Her research involves several complimentary components including evaluation of new methodologies for reliability and validity testing of cancer risk factor questionnaires and use of complex statistical modeling to examine the multilevel correlates of physical activity, active transportation, risk communication effectiveness, and other health-related behaviors. The translational aspect of Dr. Fowler's work focuses on the dissemination and implementation of evidence-based medicine into comprehensive cancer control planning. In both her research and practice of cancer prevention and control, Dr. Fowler adopts a systems approach with the emphasis on multilevel influences, and their interactions, and how this knowledge can be used to inform state cancer planning activities and population-level interventions.

Dr. Fowler took a position with the Precision Medicine Initiative in January 2017.

Current and/or past BRP mentors include Richard Moser and Gordon Willis.
