Cara Karter (Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago) recently left her position as Research & Evaluation Specialist at After School Matters to become Coordinator of Research Support at Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago. Prior to leaving After School Matters, Cara co-authored with her teen intern a blog post for American Evaluation Association with tips for co-leading evaluations with youth.

Tatiana Bustos (Michigan State University) recently defended her master’s thesis in Fall 2018. The thesis was a secondary, longitudinal analysis of two nationally distributed surveys assessing structural characteristics and state policies for school-based health centers across the U.S. Further, the analysis assessed how these organizational characteristics influenced the number of mental health services reported to be delivered from 2005 to 2014. To better understand her findings, she plans to facilitate a meeting with stakeholders in the School-Community Health Alliance of Michigan.

Jessica Shaw (Boston College) will be joining the faculty of the Community and Prevention Research program at the University of Illinois at Chicago in Fall 2019.

Katricia Stewart (Portland State University) successfully published her thesis research in the Journal of Community Psychology and intends to expand on this research for her dissertation.

Candalyn Rade (Penn State Harrisburg) was awarded the Penn State Harrisburg Research Council Grant in January 2019 for her work titled “Formation of Stereotypes about Formerly Incarcerated Persons: An Integrated Model of Implicit Person Theory and Stereotype Content Model.”
