Assistant Professor, Georgia Southern University
Represented: Patients, Caregivers, and Patient Advocates

Tilicia Mayo-Gamble is an Assistant Professor for the Department of Community Health Behavior and Education at Georgia Southern University. She conducts research on community-engaged approaches to improving protective health behaviors in patients with one or more chronic conditions. In her home life, Mayo-Gamble is the spouse to a husband with sickle cell disease. Much of her research interests are guided by her and her husband’s experiences interacting with healthcare providers on sickle cell disease management and challenges with managing the disease at home. She recognizes that books and online text do not address her husband’s needs—this information can be gained only through lived experience. She also understands the difficulties of providing input to healthcare providers and researchers about personal health. She became an advisory panel member to provide a voice for individuals with sickle cell disease. She sees this as a unique opportunity to bring patient and caregiver perspectives into the discourse.

Mayo-Gamble served as a member of the Advisory Panel on Rare Disease from September 2018 to September 2021.
