We are very happy to announce that Moore Center Director Dr. Elizabeth Letourneau was recently promoted to full professor with tenure in the Department of Mental Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Dr. Letourneau is grateful for the support she received from department faculty since beginning her employment at Hopkins.

In addition, Dr. Ryan Shields has been promoted to associate director of the Moore Center. He has become an eloquent and effective spokesperson for the center and has represented us exceptionally well at policy and practice conferences.

In 2016 we also welcomed Ms. Karen Baker, director of the National Violence Resource Center to our Scientific Advisory Board.

Over the next few months we will expand our team to include a new data associate, a policy manager and a development officer. Stay tuned for updates.
