I have recently received funding from the CDC and NIH to examine the efficacy of embedding mental health services and supports into employment training programs serving low-income African American adolescents and young adults. I have also conducted mental health research with perinatal populations, including studies aimed at preventing postpartum depression among women in home visitation programs. I also have considerable expertise in the science and practice of community-based participatory research (CBPR). I am the editor-in-chief of the only peer-reviewed journal solely focused on publishing CBPR: Progress in Community Health Partnerships: Research, Education, & Action. More recently, I was named as co-chair of the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute's (PCORI) Patient Engagement Advisory Panel.[Shorten text]
