Jeffrey Hall, PhD, MSPH, 2003


Dr. Jeffrey E. Hall is a Senior Service Fellow at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the Etiology and Surveillance Branch of the Division of Violence Prevention. His primary research focus is on linkages among personal history factors, social relationships, and community contexts and their effects upon the likelihood of violence perpetration during adolescence and early adulthood. He is also currently involved in studies examining 1) the implications of social capital for violence against women and adolescent girls, 2) the accuracy of cutoff scores for screening tools in distinguishing women who have and have not been psychologically abused, 3) the consequences of suicide exposures during adolescence for violence involvement during early adulthood, and 4) the trends in school associated violent deaths from 1992-2005.
