Profile

Dr. Jin's research has focused on advancing health equity by eliminating disparities in health behaviors, including cancer screening and Internet addiction (e.g., pathological online gaming, gambling, and social networking) among vulnerable populations. Despite the high burden of cancer and problematic Internet use for these populations, cancer screening rates remain significantly lower than the national targets among older adults of color; the prevalence of Internet addiction has dramatically increased among marginalized adolescents and younger adults. His current research interest is in reaching medically underserved populations and promoting their health behaviors by technology-based interventions.
