You can’t do a hit and run. I want to know the problems inside and out.Amanda Latimore

Amanda Latimore, PhD is now an assistant scientist for the Center for Adolescent Health, a Prevention Research Center at Johns Hopkins. She is the lead analyst for the Center’s core research project, Healthy Minds at Work (HMAW), which is a quasi-experimental, longitudinal study that delivers on-site mental health services to adolescents engaged in two Baltimore job training programs. She is currently evaluating the impact of the HMAW intervention and supervising student projects involving HMAW data. She is also developing partnerships between the Center and State officials to address adolescent health disparities.
“I have a strong interest in translating research into measurable action through collaborations with community partners and public officials. As a Brown Scholar at Johns Hopkins and a legislative liaison for a state Delegate, I have been exposed to a number of Baltimore City stakeholders and fully recognize the need to nurture, maintain and protect mutually beneficial relationships in order to empower communities and impart change. I hope to harness the experiences afforded by the Brown Scholars program to engage in impactful research with real public health implications.”
