Dr. David Jones is a licensed professional counselor, a counselor educator, and a researcher. He received his B.S. in Environmental Resources from Eastern Kentucky University, his M.P.H in Environmental Health from University of Alabama, Birmingham, his M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Cincinnati Christian University, and his Ed.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision from University of Cincinnati.
Prior to Regent, David was an assistant professor and a career counselor at Cincinnati Christian University. He also had a private practice in Ohio where he worked with individuals, couples, and families. Before his career change to professional counseling, David was an epidemiologist for 14 years working at the state and local level with a focus on maternal and child health.
David has a passion for strengthening communities and families to prevent and disrupt the poor health outcomes. David believes by moving upstream (prevention), we as a community can intercept the deleterious social influences that impact this generation and the next. To achieve this a multidimensional framework is applied to gain knowledge and implement interventions across communities to increase wellness. David's scholarly interests include prevention, health inequity, social determinants of health, resilience, mixed methods research, community-based participatory research, and spirituality/religion in counseling.
