Research Interests

Dr. Julia F. Hastings is assistant professor in the Schools of Public Health and Social Welfare at the University at Albany, SUNY.   Her research interests cover health and mental health disparities among ethnic minority populations, African American mental health, welfare participation dynamics, and ethnic minority women’s health issues. My research projects focus on the interrelationships between race, mental health outcomes, health conditions, risk and protective factors, and poverty.  I have published on culturally competent research methods within African American communities, welfare participation, depression, diabetes and depression comorbidity, and body weight. My research grant portfolio includes funding from the National Institute of Minority Health and Health Disparities, NIMH, the Ford Foundation, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.  Currently, I am PI for a NIMHD K-22 award from the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities.
