Workshop Facilitator: Cleopatra Abdou Kamperveen


Dr. Cleopatra Abdou is a faculty member at the University of Southern California. Her work integrates psychology, human development and aging, public health, and medicine to better understand lifespan and intergenerational health, with special emphasis on women’s and reproductive health. Dr. Abdou developed the Culture and Social Identity Health Theory and the related conceptual framework, Aging Before Birth and Beyond. She was the first to empirically demonstrate the phenomenon of healthcare stereotype threat, spawning a new area of research. Dr. Abdou’s nearly two-dozen articles have been published in psychology, public health, medicine, sociology, and gerontology journals. Her research has been funded by several arms of the National Institutes of Health, including the National Institute on Aging, the National Institute of Minority Health and Health Disparities, and the National Institute of Mental Health, as well as by the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Woodrow Wilson Foundation, and the Michigan Center for Integrative Approaches to Health Disparities. She is also a selected member of the Fulbright Specialists Roster. Beyond her scholarship, Dr. Abdou utilizes her expertise in maternal-child-family health to support women through conception, pregnancy, and the transition to motherhood. Her transformative experience as a Participant in the very first session of the Faculty Success Program (FSP) in 2010 inspired her to serve as an FSP coach and NCFDD Campus Workshop Facilitator. The core practices that she learned in the FSP have been instrumental in her productivity and her practice of work-life balance to support a healthy, happy family life.
