Dr. Hopkins is driven to educate, empower, and enable individuals to sustain wellness and healthy lifestyle practices. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science from the University of California-Davis, a Master of Science in Kinesiology from California State University-Fullerton and a Doctor of Public Health (DrPH) from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2012.
Dr. Hopkins’ research and practical experiences have primarily focused on the development, implementation, and dissemination of wellness practices and policies. He is particularly passionate about integrating practical “healthy-by-default” physical activity and nutrition strategies as a means to improve access and appeal for healthier alternatives, improve health and productivity among vulnerable populations, and ultimately reduce chronic disease health disparities. He has an emerging interest in addressing the sexual health and wellness needs of African American LGBT populations, particularly African American gay and bisexual men. Dr. Hopkins is committed to capacity building in community based organizations to support grassroots sexual health promotion and advocacy efforts, and seeks to nurture strategic partnerships between community-based organizations, academic institutions and governmental agencies to develop policies aimed at reducing stigma and eliminating sexual health-related disparities.
