Positions

Overview

  • Dr. Suzanne E Judd received her PhD from Emory University in 2008. Her dissertation included a clinical trial studying the effect of different forms of vitamin D on blood pressure. For this work, she was awarded a fellowship from The American Society of Nutrition. Dr. Judd also received an MPH in Epidemiology from Emory in 2005 and a BS in Chemical Engineering from Michigan Tech in 1999. After several years in the pharmaceutical industry manufacturing FDA regulated products, she returned to school to pursue a research career. She is currently a program manager for the Reasons for Geographic and Racial Differences in Stroke (REGARDS).
