Ashley Cureton Selected as LEAD Global Training Program Fellow

March 19, 2024

Assistant Professor Ashley Cureton was recently selected to be a fellow for the LEAD Global Training Program of Washington University in St. Louis. This training program is funded by the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities Research Training Program. She will undergo an intensive 10-week summer training in the U.S. and Uganda to develop skills and experiences needed to lead multi-disciplinary, collaborative research teams focused on health disparities in low-resource communities.

"I am thrilled to be selected for this prestigious program which will enable me to gain more skills on how to engage in community-engaged mental health research in global spaces and build on previous global work in countries like South Africa, Zambia, Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon, and India,” said Cureton. “I am confident that this experience will propel my future in a meaningful way as I design and implement school-based, mental health interventions and support for refugee and migrant populations, particularly for children and youth, in the U.S. and globally.”
