William J McCarthy

Division of Cancer Prevention and Control Research and Psychology Department University of California, Los Angeles, USA

Dr. McCarthy has devoted most of his 30-year career to intervention studies designed to encourage members of special populations to adhere to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans (African American adult women, low-income middle school students, low-income patients of community health centers) and to be smokefree (WIC participants, aerospace workers, Korean and South Asian immigrants). He has also conducted epidemiological investigations of tobacco use in special populations (adolescents, Asian subpopulations, residents of homeless shelters). Dr. McCarthy received the 1994 American Cancer Society Capitol Dome award for his career of public service and received the 1994 Health Fitness Leader award from the L.A. County Board of Supervisors. He received his research training at Yale University (Psychology Ph.D.) and the University of Illinois (Psychology, M.A.).

Research Interest

Dr. McCarthy and colleagues recently completed a cluster-randomized controlled trial of the efficacy of California's Senate Bill 19 Pupil Nutrition Act. He also currently directs the evaluation of California's tobacco use education efforts in the state's public middle and high schools, as he has for the previous 6 years. He and his colleagues are examining telephone counseling and lay health worker modalities for providing low-cost, high-impact lifestyle counseling to low-income patients of local community health centers to reduce their risk of cancer and diabetes.
