Dr. Ganga Bey is an epidemiologist with interdisciplinary training in social sciences, epigenetics, and the pathophysiology of cardiovascular and Alzheimer’s diseases. Dr. Bey has received numerous research grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for research on the role of social stressors in contributing to differences in aging and chronic disease risk across ethnoracially and gender diverse populations. She is thrilled to apply this skill set at EGC to assist other innovative thinkers in using science to improve the human condition. Outside of truly loving her professional work, Dr. Bey enjoys spending time with her family (including three pit bull babies), traveling, learning new languages, and training in Muay Thai.
