Biography

Dr. Kalokhe received her MD degree from Wayne State University School of Medicine in 2005 and completed her residency in internal medicine (2008) and fellowship in infectious diseases (2013) at the Emory University School of Medicine. She also recently completed a Masters in Clinical Research, a Vaccinology T32 fellowship, and Fogarty Global Health Fellowship.

Dr. Kalokhe’s primary research interests include the assessment and prevention of gender-based violence and the evaluation of its health effects (i.e. HIV/STI risk). Her prior research measured the prevalence and effect of intimate partner violence on HIV care and safe-sex practices among HIV-infected crack cocaine users. Currently, she is working in collaboration with the National AIDS Research Institute in Pune, India to develop a culturally-tailored scale to measure domestic violence among married women in India.

Dr. Kalokhe is an attending physician at Grady Memorial Hospital. She teaches ‘GH 563 AIDS: Public Health Implications’ in the Rollins School of Public Health and helps coordinate didactic lectures for the infectious diseases fellows.
