    Biography

    Benika Dixon is a Doctor of Public Health (DrPH) candidate in the School of Public Health at Texas A&M University. She holds a Master of Public Health degree from Southern Connecticut State University and a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from Spelman College in Atlanta, GA. Benika is a founding fellow of the William Averette Anderson Fund and previously served as the secretary and vice chairperson of the student advisory council. Benika currently serves as a lead teaching assistant for the newly developed MPH Core within the School of Public Health. The MPH Core is a case-based approach that not only provides a firm foundation for understanding the social machinery and scientific underpinnings of public health, but also flips the switch to put that machinery into action. 

    Prior to attending Texas A&M University, Benika served as a research associate for the Why Culture Matter Disaster Studies Project at Morgan State University. Her work as a research associate included the development of the Morgan State University Campus Emergency Response Team as well as partnering with the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and several HBCUs to develop the HBCU Emergency Management Consortium. Her research interests include disaster related public health impacts on racial and ethnic minorities, health impacts on environmental justice communities, cultural diversity in the hazards/disaster workforce and more.
