Personal profile

Research Interests

Dr. Becker has extensive training and experience in the practice of Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) and has written a number of book chapters and articles on this approach to examining and addressing public health problems. He has applied this methodology to examine and address the impact of stressful community conditions on the health of women raising children, youth violence prevention, and the impact of the social and physical environment on physical activity. In his role as executive director of the Consortium to Lower Obesity in Chicago Children, he is currently exploring the role that social determinants of health play in children's nutrition and physical activity opportunities and behaviors.

In addition to Dr. Becker's role as executive director of CLOCC, he is currently applying a social determinants of health approach to asthma prevention in urban youth and is co-Principal Investigator on a CBPR relationship development seed grant to explore and address the intersections of housing, the environment, and health.
