Albuquerque Area Southwest Tribal Epidemiology Center
Dr. English is the Director of the Albuquerque Area Southwest Tribal Epidemiology Center (AASTEC), which serves 27 Native American communities in the Southwest. Current AASTEC services are organized around four priority areas: epidemiology, health research, training, and public health practice. Since 1995, Dr. English has been working with tribal communities across the country as a researcher, public health practitioner, and clinical pharmacist.
Dr. English received his doctorate in public health from Columbia University in 2013. He is currently the Co-Investigator of a National Cancer Institute–funded study, “Enhancing Prevention Pathways Toward Tribal Colorectal Health,” which aims to test the efficacy of serially implemented, graded-intensity interventions in Native American communities to enhance annual colorectal cancer screening by using the fecal immunochemical test (FIT).
