Dr. Kevin A. Henry is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Utah. His research focuses on the development and application of geospatial methods and tools for investigating associations between neighborhood environments and health outcomes (e.g., cancer, pre-term birth, obesity, infectious disease). Most recently, he completed several projects that utilized cancer data to describe racial/ethnic, socioeconomic, and geographic disparities in cancer incidence, treatment, and survival. This work employed various multi-level models and clustering techniques and involved the development of a new method to impute missing geocodes (geographical-imputation) to avoid geographic selection bias. He is presently collaborating on research funded by Susan G. Komen, which examines how geographic barriers to care impact breast cancer stage and treatment options. Prior to his current position, Dr. Henry was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, and Associate Director of the New Jersey Cancer Registry.
