Young Ji Lee

Assistant Professor
Health & Community Systems


My research interests have been focused on structuring and delivering health information through an informatics-based approach to diverse groups, especially to minority populations. Especially, my research has engaged community residents to assess their needs and understand their circumstances in order to empower them to manage their own health through health communication interventions. Methodologically, I have extensive experience in mining big data to reveal hidden relationships between agents. 

My current project is to apply network analysis to social media data to understand patterns of symptom cluster and unmet needs among ovarian cancer survivors. 


I teach NURSP 2075 Intro to Health Informatics (both face-to-face and online classes). 


I am a member of AMIA (American Medical Informatics Association), HIMSS (Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society), AcademyHealth, and Sigma Theta Tau.
