Associate Dean, Community Engagement
Morehouse School of Medicine is a co-educational medical school in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.
I am an Associate Professor within Morehouse School of Medicine’s Department of Community Health and Preventive Medicine and serve as Director of its Prevention Research Center (PRC), funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. I am also Director of Morehouse School of Medicine's Evaluation and Institutional Assessment. These leadership posts build upon my role in establishing The PRC's Evaluation Unit, which has demonstrated assessment capacities through leading the evaluation of several NIH research, training and infrastructure grants, among others awarded by federal, non-governmental, and private foundations, through the provision of program evaluation capacity building and technical assistance to community‐based organizations, public health practitioners, academicians, researchers, and health care organizations conducting initiatives to address chronic health disparities or to conduct effective research translation. I conduct these activities incorporating expertise in the areas of community-engaged research, social marketing and participatory mixed-methods evaluation.
