About the Interview

About the Interview Subject:

Dr. Lovell Jones (b. 12 January 1949, Baton Rouge, Louisiana) came to MD Anderson in 1980 to join the faculty of the Department of Gynecologic Oncology and Reproductive Medicine. He retired in 2013 and holds the title of Professor Emeritus in the Department of Health Disparities Research in the Division of Cancer Prevention and Population Sciences. Dr. Jones established his research reputation through his work on the role of synthetic estrogens in gynecologic cancers. Later he focused on health disparities research. He worked at MD Anderson and on the national stage to develop the understanding of “health equity.” He was responsible for developing minority health initiatives such as the Biennial Symposium Series on ‘Minorities, the Medically Underserved and Cancer’ (’88), the National Black Leadership Initiative on Cancer (’95), the Inter-cultural Cancer Council, and the Health Disparities Education Awareness Research and Training Consortium ’02).
