About Folakemi Odedina

Folakemi Odedina works on the development of a predictive behavioral model of prostate cancer disparities among Black men and the implementation of cost-effective, community-based intervention programs in minority and underserved communities.

Odedina’s research program focuses on the predictors of health disparities and cost-effective, community-based behavioral interventions to improve the health of Black men. She has directed more than 20 research projects, including: (1) the Florida A&M University Center for Minority Prostate Cancer Training and Research (CMPC), which comprises a trans-disciplinary team of clinical, behavioral and basic scientists; and (2) a landmark Department of Defense prostate cancer research project which accrued over 3,000 Black men in Florida. Her initiatives include the Men’s Health Initiative and the Black Men’s Health Consortium in Florida.

Odedina’s research traverses across the world with an international consortium group in Africa, Caribbean Islands, Europe and the United States. She has received numerous awards for her work, including the 1st American Society of Health-Systems Pharmacy/ Association of Black Health-System Pharmacists Leadership Award for Health Disparities (2009); American Association for Cancer Research – MSI Faculty Award in Cancer Research (2007, 2002, 1998); US Fulbright Scholar award (2006 – 2007); Role Model Award Citation by Minority Access Inc (2005); and Association of Black Health-system Pharmacists Research and Publication Achievement Award (2004). She is also noted in Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who in Science and Engineering publications. Odedina currently serves on several international, national and state initiatives for cancer.
