Dr. Jeongok Logan’s clinical expertise stems from the care of adult patients with cardiovascular disease.  She received her PhD from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  In support of the Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Individual Fellowship (F31) from the National Institutes of Health/National Institute of Nursing Research (NIH/NINR), her doctoral study explored the relationship between psychological stress and arterial stiffness in nonhypertensive Korean Americans.  She completed her post-doctoral fellowship with the Intramural Research Training Award (IRTA) at the NIH/NINR.  Her current research funded by Mentored Patient-Oriented Research Career Development Award (K23) from NIH/NINR focuses on investigating the underlying mechanisms by which psychological stress contributes to arterial stiffness.  Her program of research includes identifying causal risk factors of arterial stiffness and developing culturally sensitive interventions for reduction of arterial stiffness in people at high risk of cardiovascular disease.
