Associate Professor, Director of Diversity and Inclusivity

Jenna Hatcher received both a BSN and MSN from West Virginia University. She received her MPH and PhD from the University of Kentucky and is now an associate professor in the College of Nursing. Dr. Hatcher’s dissertation examined mental health disparities found in African-American single mothers. This work has been published in peer-reviewed journals including The Journal of Mental Health Nursing. Continuing her research interest in health disparities experienced by vulnerable populations, she is currently the principal investigator of a five-year project funded by the National Cancer Institute—SEEDS (Sisters Educated in Emergency Departments). The project focuses on promoting mammography for African-American women while they visit the emergency department for nonurgent care. She is also co-investigator on an NIH-funded project (Faith Moves Mountains) which promotes breast and cervical cancer prevention for Eastern Kentucky women and Heart Health a multi-year project designed to promote heart health in vulnerable Kentucky residents. Dr. Hatcher is the vice president and a founding member of the Lexington Chapter of the National Black Nurses Association. She is active in the local, regional and national arena in improving the health of vulnerable populations through research and community service.
