Dr. Dana Prince’s work is grounded in six years of practice experience in underserved communities where she developed, implemented, and evaluated school-based initiatives to address the health and mental health needs of low-income racial minority youth. Her research seeks to investigate pathways to health and well-being among vulnerable adolescents and young adults, including low-income and system involved youth, with a focus on cumulative disadvantage across the lifespan, dimensions of self-concept, and the role that institutional and community-based services play during the transition to adulthood among vulnerable youth. Prior to joining the faculty at the Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, Dr. Prince completed her NIDA-funded T32 postdoctoral fellowship at the Yale School of Medicine in 2016.
