Owens, Christopher Assistant Professor


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health and Kinesiology, Health Education Division. I am an applied health behavior scientist who studies (1) LGBTQ health and (2) HIV prevention/care. Within these two areas, I specifically study (1) rural LGBTQ health, (2) rural HIV prevention/care, and (3) LGBTQ adolescent health. Although I use various designs, my formal training is in mixed method studies and qualitative studies. My goal is to advance LGBTQ health equity, especially among LGBTQ adolescents.
