Personal Statement

My research centers on working with troubled youth, especially those involved in gangs and gun violence. I work with police departments and community-based organizations throughout the state of Pennsylvania providing gun violence education and training. I am Director of the BCHS Center for Health Equity’s Violence Prevention Project where I oversee training, data collection and outreach efforts aimed at reducing crime and violence. At the Center we are conducting a hospital-based intervention project where gunshot wound victims receiving treatment in four major trauma units will be  counseled in an effort to reduce emergency department recidivism. We will provide case management  services to attempt to alter the lifestyle of the victims with the goal of preventing further involvement with crime and violence.

 


Education

I completed my Master’s Degree in Social Work in 1996, specializing in Community Organization. I have also received several awards, including the Lucien E. Blackwell award from Philadelphia Mayor, Michael Nutter, for contributions to the greater community in 2009, and the Courage to Comeback Award from the St. Francis Foundation on Overcoming Economic Diversity in 1998.
