Eun-Ok Im, PhD, MPH, RN, CNS, FAAN

Dr. Im received a BSN with an honor (magna cum laude) and a MPH from Seoul National University in South Korea. She received her second Master's degree (MSN) from the University of California, San 
Francisco (UCSF), and finally a PhD in nursing from UCSF in 1997. She also had 1.5 years of postdoctoral study at UCSF.



Dr. Im's most outstanding contribution to nursing is a research program that adopts Internet and computer technologies to eliminate gender and ethnic disparities. She has taken the lead in this burgeoning field, and her current studies are among the first of their kind to use these technologies to build nursing knowledge. She has also gained national and international recognition as a methodologist and theorist in international cross-cultural women’s health through more than 350 papers, abstracts, and chapters (over 150 refereed journal articles) and over 250 international and national multi-disciplinary presentations. Dr. Im has been on more than 45 research review panels of the NIH, and is also a reviewer for the PCORI and the American Heart Association. Dr. Im is a senior editor of the Journal of Transcultural Nursing, is on the editorial boards of 8 journals including the Advances in Nursing Science and the Research in Nursing and Health, and is on 13 editorial review boards. She has numerous national and international awards, one of which is the 2014 International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame Award from the Sigma Theta Tau International.



Dr. Im's program of research can be described as feminist-driven Internet research on gender and ethnic differences in health/illness experience of midlife women. Dr. Im's doctoral research and post-doctoral study focused on international cross-cultural women’s health research. Then, her work extended to oncology areas, and she developed Internet research methodology as an area of expertise. She further integrated this line of work with research projects on gender and ethnic differences in cancer pain, menopausal symptoms, and physical activity as the principal investigator through a series of NIH-funded, R01 awards. She has obtained about 17.5 million dollars (9.1 million as the PI) of research funding through R01s (4 R01s as the PI) and other grants (25 small grant studies).



Dr. Im’s dedication to teaching and mentoring a new generation of scholars is reflected in her efforts made to individually mentor more than 40 doctoral and post-doctoral scholars, 90 undergraduate students, and 50 research assistants (counting only since Sep. 2002). Also, her national and international invited lectures, presentations, book chapters, and service activities represent her efforts to raise a next generation of nurses and to make advances in nursing science. Dr. Im has taught courses on nursing theory, nursing philosophy, critical literature review, research methods, and global women’s health issues.

    Role: Co-core director/Co-Investigator
    Purpose: to establish a Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Research for Underserved Populations within the formal structures of the School of Nursing at The University of Texas at Austin. Activities and studies supported by the Center will emphasize the development of health promotion/disease prevention interventions that are community-based, culturally competent and age- and gender-specific to promote the health of underserved groups. The Center will include a core administrative structure, pilot grant mechanisms, and three research cores: Theory and Methods Core, Research Development and Dissemination Core, and Underserved and Diverse Populations Core. Major components of the Center will be the establishment of analytic methods using advanced, innovative statistics; exploration of innovative ways of disseminating research findings; development of linkages with representatives of target underserved groups; and establishment of consultative relationships with international experts. Pilot studies supported by the Center Small Grant Mechanism will be conducted with the common specific aim of acquiring the data to justify extramural grant applications to test innovative health promotion/disease prevention interventions for underserved groups. The intent of the research will be to reduce disparities in the health status of racial and ethnic minority populations; of women and children, in particular those from impoverished backgrounds; and of people with chronic and disabling conditions.
