Adrienne A Morgan

Lecturing Fellow in the Thompson Writing Program


My program of research examines the influence of social and health disparities on cognitive aging. I study how these disparities work separately and together to affect cognitive aging and decline in African Americans. I am currently a lecturing fellow in the Thompson Writing Program and a research scientist in the Center on Biobehavioral Health Disparities Research at the Social Science Research Institute at Duke.
