About Ledric Sherman

Ledric Sherman, PhD, is an associate professor in the Department of Health Behavior at the Texas A&M University School of Public Health.

Dr. Sherman’s research interests are focused on type 2 diabetes self-management, men’s health, technology use to manage chronic illness, and health education and wellness promotion. His research agenda has two distinct lines of work: reducing chronic disease disparities, pointedly type 2 diabetes, among ethnic minority men, and examining the intersection of race, gender and geography.

Dr. Sherman’s work seeks to inform the knowledge base regarding health disparities, particularly in type 2 diabetes prevention and management among populations and communities adversely impacted by health disparities.
