“I am honored and excited to take on this new leadership role at the IUHR and within Bouve’ College and the University. Building upon the work of the IUHR Founding Director, Dr. Hortensia Amaro, and the leadership of John Auerbach, we are committed to re-establishing the IUHR as a focal point and intellectual home at NEU for inter-disciplinary urban health research. We will continue to do this through the engagement of inter-disciplinary faculty, and undergraduate and graduate students form Bouve’ and campus wide who share a commitment to urban health and social justice.”
