Senior Lecturer

Dr. Adeniyi Abolaji Adeboye

Adeniyi Adeboye (Ade) earned his doctorate degree in Public Health with a concentration in Health Promotion, Health Education; Behavioural Epidemiology; and Biostatistics from the University of Texas Health Science Centre in Houston, Texas, United States. Ade also earned his Master of Public Health in Healthcare Management and Policy from Harvard University, Master of Science in International Health from Humboldt University Berlin, Germany, and his medical degree from the University of Ilorin, Ilorin, Nigeria.

Ade is also trained and certified in learning management systems, active blended learning, and travel medicine. For more than ten years and in more than three Universities, Ade has leveraged his diverse educational background to be versatile and pedagogically skillful in developing course specifications and teaching many Public Health related courses. He joined Regent College in 2022 as a lecturer in Health and Social Care and has been aligning his skills with the vision of the college to assist the college in achieving its mission. Ade’s teaching philosophy is grounded in emotional intelligence highlighting the art and science of teaching public health courses as an endeavour that is reciprocally rewarding.

Ade has served multiple times as an Assistant Editor for many reputable international journals, and he is also an active member of several professional organizations and scientific/working groups.

Ade’s research interest is in social and behavioral aspects of population health with an emphasis on the use of epidemiological data to develop a theoretically sound understanding of health risks and disease and to offer a novel and meaningful health intervention for socially marginalized populations. Ade’s research interest is born out of two main reasons. First, by emerging empirical evidence that innovatively characterizes co-existing health risks and diseases as having additive and synergistic effects that amplify other diseases among socially disparaged populations. This underscores the Syndemic theory and extends its utility as one of the evolving health models grounded in the sociopolitical construction of risk and disease that extends beyond the extant biomedical research paradigm. Second, by urgent need to increase the effectiveness of current public health interventions through a novel approach. This involves harnessing untapped resources inherently present in the concept of resilience to unravel and buffer the Syndemic production of other diseases. This may be an unexplored alternative approach to meeting the health needs of socially marginalized populations and subpopulations. Ade has explored Syndemic, resilience, and other innovative health theories through national institutes of health-funded research in many different contexts. To reach a wider academic and non-academic audiences, Ade has presented the findings of these studies at many international conferences in the US, China, and UK and has published the full length of these studies in over 30 reputable international journals.
