Chandria Jones Selected for Casey Foundation's Scholars Program


Chandria Jones, Ph.D., M.P.H., a Westat Senior Study Director, has been selected by the Annie E. Casey Foundation for its Leaders in Equitable Evaluation and Diversity (LEEAD) scholars program.

The 9-month program seeks to increase the field’s diversity by developing pipelines of leaders from communities that are underrepresented and who are committed to culturally responsive and equitable evaluation.

“My current research work focuses on social and environmental determinants of health for vulnerable populations, such as racial and ethnic minorities, low-income youth and families, and individuals with mental health and substance use disorders,” noted Dr. Jones. “As a LEEAD scholar, I’m looking forward to enhancing my skills and training in order to lead evaluation work that focuses on health equity particularly for children and families.”
