Jennifer Irvin Vidrine, PhD

Peggy and Charles Stephenson Endowed Chair in Cancer, Associate Director for Cancer Prevention and Control and Director of the Oklahoma Tobacco Research Center at the Stephenson Cancer Center; Associate Professor, Department of Family and Preventive Medicine, University of Oklahoma Health Sciences

Dr. Jennifer I. Vidrine earned her PhD in Clinical Psychology from the University of South Florida in 2003, and completed her clinical internship within the Warren Alpert School of Medicine at Brown University. She completed a NCI-funded R25) postdoctoral fellowship in cancer prevention at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, where she stayed on as faculty for 12 years and served as Deputy Department Chair for the Department of Health Disparities Research. She began her new position at  the Stephenson Cancer Center at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in May 2015.

Dr. Vidrine’s research program focuses on eliminating health disparities through evaluating the impact of tailored health risk communications, examining potential mechanisms underlying changes in risk perceptions over time in the natural environment, disseminating evidence-based tobacco cessation interventions to underserved populations, smoking cessation interventions for vulnerable and underserved smokers, and implementing and evaluating health care systems-level tobacco treatment interventions. Her research program has been continuously supported over the past 14 years by grants from the National Institutes of Health (National Cancer Institute), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, and the Cancer Prevention Research Institute of Texas.
