National Appointment for Brawner
Bridgette Brawner, PhD, APRN, Assistant Professor of Nursing, was appointed to the Minority Fellowship Program (MFP) National Advisory Committee, which is dedicated to advising MFP staff; developing partnerships with professional, academic, and clinical institutions; and soliciting support by individuals and groups for the initiative. The committee’s efforts strengthen the MFP by building a sustainable infrastructure and developing long-term partnerships in order to expand its presence into more communities across the nation.
Dr. Brawner’s research agenda focuses on multi-level, multi-method, bio-behavioral approaches to sexual health promotion in disenfranchised populations. One consistent thread throughout her research to date has been a passion and vision for physical and mental health among urban women and girls, with a commitment to maintain strong community ties.
