Dr. Jenkins’ research interests are in the areas of STD epidemiology and cancer disparities. STD research has examined, among other things, the integration of screening interventions in clinical settings, and large scale intervention evaluation at the university campus and regional scale. Cancer disparities explore rural/urban differences in risk, how they might be mitigated, and the influence of STDs (specifically chlamydia and HPV) in oral cancers. His more recent work examines disease transmission among injection drug users in rural communities.
