Dr. Lisa Cooper is the James F. Fries Professor of Medicine and a Bloomberg Distinguished Professor at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, School of Nursing and Bloomberg School of Public Health. She was one of the first scientists to document disparities in the quality of relationships between physicians and patients from socially at-risk groups. She then designed innovative interventions targeting physicians’ communication skills, patients’ self-management skills, and healthcare organizations’ ability to address needs of underserved populations. Dr. Cooper directs the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Equity, where she and her team work with health system and community stakeholders to implement rigorous clinical trials, identifying interventions that alleviate disparities in healthcare and outcomes. She has received several honors, including a MacArthur Fellowship, membership in the National Academy of Medicine, the Association of American Medical Colleges Herbert W.
