Dr. Randolph is an Associate Professor at Duke School of Nursing and has been a registered nurse for over 25 years.  She is advancing the nursing science by addressing the root causes of sexual health inequities for Black male adolescents and women. Her work has received national attention in the popular media and has been supported by public and private funders. She has publications in peer-reviewed journals that highlight population health and community and stakeholder engagement in education and research.  From 2016-2021, she was Co-Director of the Community Engagement and Dissemination Core at the Duke Center for REACH Equity, a NIMHD-funded health disparities research center, where she provided consultations and trainings to career development scholars and researchers on community engagement principles and evidence-based strategies to better engage community stakeholders in research projects. She has provided technical consultations to researchers for numerous clinical trials that have increased participation in community engaged research and vulnerable populations. She co- developed a Community and Stakeholder Engagement course for the Duke CTSI and a COVID-19 Community Conversations series which has been utilized as a model for other researchers to engage their populations of study during the global pandemic.
