Our Research Trainees
A key goal of the Johns Hopkins ALACRITY Center is to expand the group of transdisciplinary researchers studying strategies to improve physical health and longevity among the population with serious mental illness. The Center’s Training Core includes training and mentorship opportunities for trainees with interest in this area. Our trainees have included, masters’ students, doctoral students, postdoctoral fellows, and early career faculty coming from a variety of backgrounds – from internal medicine to health policy to engineering. ALACRITY Center trainees play a key role in our research and have contributed significantly to publications related to our work. These include publications in Journal of the American Medical Association, Psychiatric Services, Health Services Research, The Journal of General Internal Medicine, Implementation Research and Practice, and Obesity Science and Practice, as well as other journals. Trainees have also had the opportunity to design and lead on-demand lectures for the Center, present at the Center’s Research in Progress meetings and lead presentations on the Center’s research at professional conferences, such as AcademyHealth’s annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation in Health.
