Dr. Lea contributes to developing E4A priorities and reviews and recommends applications for funding. His research examines the risk, resilience, and resistance processes of young Black men at risk and involved in the criminal legal system and the impact of culturally congruent health prevention and promotion interventions on their health and well-being. Dr. Lea has expertise in qualitative methodology, program evaluation, and community-based participatory research with racial and ethnic minoritized communities.

E4A National Program Office member

I am excited and honored to work with the E4A team to support and promote action-oriented research that has the potential to counteract the harms and structural and systemic racism and improve the health, well-being, and equity experiences and outcomes of marginalized communities.
