Biography

Dr. Rodgers focuses on adolescent health promotion in low-income urban communities. Her research examines protective and risk factors for adolescent problem behaviors (i.e., sexual risk behaviors and substance use). Through the employment of community-based participatory research (CBPR) as a research approach, Dr. Rodgers works with communities, families and youth to further understand protective factors that promote resiliency, strength and adaptive functioning among economically disadvantaged urban youth of color. Through the identification and promotion of resilience within communities, she intends to develop and promote effective prevention and intervention programming to increase adaptive and successful outcomes for low-income urban youth and families of color.

Dr. Caryn Rodgers earned her doctorate in clinical psychology from St. John’s University in Jamaica, NY. Following completion of her doctorate, Dr. Rodgers completed the Leadership in Education and Adolescent Health (LEAH) psychology fellowship in adolescent medicine through Harvard Medical School. Subsequently, she completed a fellowship in Community-Based Participatory Research as a W. K. Kellogg Community Health Scholar in the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins
University in Baltimore, MD.
