April Mohanty's research goals are to identify and reduce health inequalities in cardiovascular disease prevention, management, and related outcomes. Dr. Mohanty has training in epidemiology, health services, and biomedical informatics and has applied these skills to address gaps in research related to cardiovascular diseases including sudden cardiac arrest, heart failure, and hypertension. She also has research experience in women's health and chronic multisymptom illness. Her HSR&D-funded Career Development Award aims to identify reasons for racial disparities in blood pressure management and control. Her research will lead to the development of a VA tailored informatics strategy designed to reduce health inequalities in blood pressure management and ultimately to improve blood pressure control for all Veterans. Dr. Mohanty received her MPH and PhD from the University of Washington School of Public Health. She is currently a Research Health Scientist at the VA HSR&D Informatics, Decision-Enhancement and Analytic Sciences Center (IDEAS) in Salt Lake City, and an Assistant Professor at the University of Utah, Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Epidemiology.
