Dr. Lucinda Deason’s productive summer researching will bear fruit later this academic year. She has been building on her national reputation in the area of Culturally Competent Public Service. Look for the following forthcoming publications from her:
- Deason, L.M., Adhikari, S.B., Clopton, T.M., Oches, B., and Jensen, C. “The Ohio Cross-Cultural Tobacco Control Alliance: Understanding and Eliminating Tobacco-Related Health Disparities through the Integration of Science, Practice, and Policy” American Journal of Public Health, Fall 2009.
- Aka, P. and Deason, L.M. “Culturally Competent Public Services and English-Only Laws,” Howard Law Journal, Vol. 53(1), 2009.
- Deason, L.M. and Aka, P.C. “Culturally and Linguistically Competent Public Services in anEra of English-Only Laws.” In Diversity and Public Administration, 2nd Edition. Edited by Mitchell Rice. ME Sharpe Inc.
Her publication in the American Journal of Public Health, one of the top tier journals in medicine and biology, is a noteworthy accomplishment. The American Journal of Public Health is widely respected and ranks highly with the New England Journal of Medicine, the Journal of the American Medical Association, and the British Medical Journal. The American Journal of Public Health, the monthly peer-reviewed journal of the American Public Health Association, was recognized in June 2009 as one of the top 100 influential journals in biology and medicine over the last century.
