Corey L. Nagel, PhD, MPH, RN, is an Assistant Professor in the UAMS College of Nursing. Dr. Nagel’s research focuses on the social and environmental determinants of health in the United States and globally. In the US, his research involves using data from nationally-representative health surveys merged with external data sources such as medical claims, census records, and geographic information systems data to identify factors that impact the health of older adults. Globally, Dr. Nagel works with a team of researchers to evaluate community-level environmental health interventions in low-income countries, with a focus on reducing child morbidity and mortality from diarrheal and respiratory disease. His global health work includes cluster-randomized controlled trials of large-scale sanitation, household drinking water, and improved cookstove interventions in Kenya and Rwanda; studies of latrine use and rural water quality in India and Bangladesh; and the first national-level assessment of household drinking water quality in Rwanda. In addition to his research activities, Dr. Nagel is committed to providing the next generation of nurse researchers with rigorous methodological training and mentorship. Dr. Nagel currently teaches Quantitative Epidemiology and Quantitative Research Methods to graduate students in the College of Nursing and is actively involved in mentoring doctoral students. Prior to joining the UAMS faculty in 2017, he was an Assistant Professor with joint appointments in the Schools of Nursing and Public Health at Oregon Health & Science University.  Dr. Nagel obtained a BSN in Nursing from UAMS. At Oregon Health & Science University he received an MS in Nursing, a Master of Public Health (MPH), a PhD in Nursing Science, and completed a post-doctoral fellowship focusing on the application of machine learning and other advanced statistical methods to epidemiological data.
