Mark R. Schulz, PhD
My current research interests are the determinants of physical activity particularly bicycling in populations, prevention of bicycling injuries, and occupational health issues of Latino workers. The bicycle-related research is my newer, developing research area. In contrast, my interest in occupational health dates back to my work in the 1980s and 1990s with non-profit organizations advocating for improved workplace health conditions in Wisconsin and North Carolina. My publications includes work documenting occupational health issues of Latino farmworkers, racial and ethnic disparities in work-related cancers and risk assessment research comparing cancer risks estimated from epidemiologic studies with risks estimated from animal bioassays. Please review my CV for a complete list of my publications.
I have taught epidemiology and environmental health to both MPH students and undergraduates for many years. Recently, I began teaching the research team practicum in our DRPH program. The four cornerstones of my teaching philosophy are,
- Treat students as I would like to be treated (with respect).
- As much as possible include participatory activities in my teaching because students learn by doing.
- Incorporate current research and my research into my teaching in order to share my passion for learning and introduce the latest thinking in the field to students.
- Teaching does not stop at the classroom door.
