Using Community-Based Scholarship to Promote Health in An Emerging Latino Community

Dr. Rosalie Corona

Dr. Rosalie Corona is a bilingual, bicultural scholar and clinician. In general, Dr. Corona conducts qualitative and quantitative community-based research to identify risk and protective factors for Latino and African American adolescents’ health. Her primary areas of focus have been adolescent risk behaviors, family relationships, cultural factors, and the development and evaluation of prevention programs aimed at strengthening family relationships and reducing risk behaviors. She was recently awarded the VCU Presidential Awards for Community Multicultural Enrichment, an annual award presented for significant contributions to enhancing VCU’s commitment to diversity. Her selection to receive the award stemmed from her community-engaged research, teaching, and service activities in the emerging Latino community in the Richmond, VA area. She was recently selected to receive the American Psychological Association’s MFP Dalmas Taylor Award for her contributions towards the development of ethnic minority psychologist, and to serve as the co-chair for the Society for Research on Adolescence Undergraduate Scholar Program.
