Dr. Manu Pokharel

Featured Health Research Affiliate

It isn't surprising to learn Dr. Manu Pokharel takes an interdisciplinary approach to health research. With a B.A in Nursing, an M.A. in Health Promotion, and a Ph.D. in Health Communication, Dr. Pokharel's own interdisciplinary background helped prepare her for a career in clinical research with real world relevance. Dr Pokharel joined the Texas State faculty this fall after completing her PhD at the University of Utah, where she served as a project manager in a health communication and technology lab. Her research focuses on visual imagery and data visualizations that can be used as persuasive tools to reduce cancer risk behaviors. Her most recent research identifies obstacles to early detection of skin cancer.
