We are proud to announce that JDP student Elizabeth Rangel (entering class of 2020) has been selected to participate in one of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s leadership programs. These programs connect changemakers across the country—from diverse professions and fields—to learn from and work with one another in creating more just and thriving communities.
Specifically, Elizabeth was selected for Health Policy Research Scholars. Designed for doctoral students from historically marginalized backgrounds and populations underrepresented in specific disciplines, Health Policy Research Scholars helps students from all fields apply their work to policies that advance equity and health while building a diverse network of leaders who reflect our changing national demographics.
As a member of the program’s newest cohort, Elizabeth will focus on utilizing dissemination and implementation science and community-based research approaches to increase access to culturally appropriate, evidence-based mental health services for children and families.
