Bellinger Named 2021 Paul Ambrose Scholar


Grace Bellinger, a Northwestern University Interdepartmental Neuroscience (NUIN) PhD/MPH candidate, was named a 2021 Paul Ambrose Scholar by the Association for Prevention Teaching and Research (APTR). Bellinger was mentored throughout the year-long program by Lauren Beach, PhD, and assisted with “We’re Here! Identifying Bi+ Individuals’ Primary Care Needs through Collaborative Community Engaged Research,” a project funded by an NP3 grant. The final report for her community-based project can now be viewed online. Additionally, Grace shared some of the results of the survey study through an oral presentation at the National LGBTQ Health Conference in July. An overview of the larger study conducted with Howard Brown Health and Bisexual Queer Alliance Chicago was also printed in the spring edition of Bi Women Quarterly.

APTR selected a cohort of 33 students from across the health professions as the 2021 class of Paul Ambrose Scholars. Students commit their time and effort to improve health within their communities through the planning and implementation of a community-based project. The APTR Paul Ambrose Scholars Program helps students promote change and be leaders in addressing population health challenges at the national and community level.
