Terence Johnson is a 3rd year doctoral student in the Division of Pharmaceutical Outcomes and Policy at the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy. While at UNC, Terence has worked on several studies that investigate factors that influence HIV related disparities among low-income and disadvantaged populations. For Terence’s dissertation research, he will assess racial disparities in disease self-management for older people living with HIV. Additionally, he is an alumni of the UNC Ronald E. McNair Post-baccalaureate Achievement program and earned his B.S. in Public Health: Health Policy and Management at the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health. His interests outside of research include: fishing, basketball, and Netflix marathons. Terence is thrilled for the opportunity to join the Sheps center as an NRSA predoctoral fellow and advance his understanding of the complex social and environments factors that contribute to health disparities.
