Biography

Kaprea Johnson joins the college from Virginia Commonwealth University where she was a tenured faculty member in the Department of Counseling and Special Education. Her interests are broadly situated in interrogating education and healthcare systems as it relates to addressing social determinants of health needs, equity, access, and justice. 

Education

  • PhD. Counselor Education and Supervision, The Pennsylvania State University, 2011
  • M.Ed. Counseling, Howard University in Washington DC
  • B.A. Psychology, Norfolk State University in Norfolk VA

Research Summary

My research is focused on the social determinants of health (SDOH), which are non-medical factors, such as food insecurity, discrimination, and healthcare access that influence health and wellness outcomes for all populations. I am particularly interested in the impact of SDOH for historically marginalized Black and Brown people across the lifespan. Within this research, I am making valuable contributions to knowledge about: (1) provider training needs; (2) equity issues in SDOH intervention, assessment, and screening approaches; and (3) the cumulative impact of SDOH needs on the well-being and mental health of youth and transitional aged adults.
