Dr. Miyong Kim received her BSN and PhD from University of Arizona with minor in Psychology (psychometrics). Dr. Kim completed her postdoctoral fellowship on program evaluation at the University of Arizona.

Dr. Kim is a translational researcher who has built a strong program of research that has focused on community-based participatory research (CBPR) as means of reducing cardiovascular health related health disparities among traditionally undeserved ethnic minority populations.

Dr. Kim’s research program examines the effectiveness of self-care strategies for improving health outcomes and overcoming racial, ethnic and social disparities in healthcare. Using an immigrant community as a community laboratory to build sound translational science, her recent work has been focused on Korean Americans. She has conducted several descriptive studies to explore and better define barriers and facilitators to equitable care for this racial and ethnic minority population. She also has led six intervention trials to test various self care strategies to improve cardiovascular health outcomes, (R15) funded by the National Institute of Nursing Research, (twoR01s) funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), ( R34, R18) funded by National institute of Digestive, Diabetic and Kidney disease (NIDDK). Dr. Kim also directed the Center of Excellence for Cardiovascular Health of Vulnerable Populations at the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing, which was funded through the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR 2009-2013).

Dr. Kim’s other research expertise includes research methods of cross-cultural research, instrumentation, comparative epidemiology and program evaluation. Dr. Kim’s scientific contributions have been well acknowledged by her peers in her induction as a Fellow of the Western Academy of Nursing (2000), the American Health Association (2003), and American Academy of nursing (2004) and recently inducted as Nurse Researchers Hall of Fame from Sigma Theta Tau honor Society (2012).

Dr. Kim’s research links community building strategies and health outcomes for individuals from underserved communities; her work continues to inform the researchers and clinicians to find community based evidence materials that deliver high quality, equitable care to increasingly diverse patient populations. Moreover, the local and global impact of her research and scholarship has changed not only the thinking, but also the research methods, among those now working in the field of cardiovascular prevention science in vulnerable populations.
