Dr. Camille R. Quinn, PhD, AM, LCSW, LISW-S, is a health criminologist scholar whose research focuses on investigating the health and mental health equity of African American adolescents and young adults at the intersections of race, gender, health, crime and system involvement. Specifically, as an extension of her vast practice experience, she uses mixed-methods research to identify and address the needs of Black girls and young women involved in the youth punishment system to develop and advance effective and proactive prevention and intervention approaches as well as practice, policy and research. Currently, Quinn is the PI of a National Institute of Minority Health and Health Disparities Loan Repayment award focused on mental health disparities of Black girls who are involved with the youth punishment system, and a PI of the MacArthur Foundation’s Safety and Justice Challenge grant, which invests in efforts to increase criminal justice reform at the local level.
