Bio

Growing the SSW Research Infrastructure and the Doctoral Program

Dr. Yu’s research has been focused on health disparities and the interconnections of mental health, physical health, and health risk behavior. Each of these components of a person’s life impacts the others. Dr. Yu compares different segments of populations, particularly vulnerable and disadvantaged populations, to identify problems and issues around these aspects of people’s lives. His goal is to generate scientific evidence that practitioners in the field can use to better meet the needs of their clients.

Dr. Yu’s research was recognized by the Society for Social Work Research (SSWR) as he was inducted as the SSWR Fellow in 2017 and received the Distinguished Research Award from the University of Missouri College of Human Environmental Sciences. In addition, Dr. Yu has a joint appointment with the MU Department of Public Health. He was inducted into the Delta Omega Public Health Honorary Society, founded by the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health in 1924, to be recognized for his achievements in public health research and engagement.
