PHMC’s Research & Evaluation Group is pleased to welcome four distinct research professionals to the 2021-2022 Visiting Scholars Program. Read more on the PHMC Intranet.

The PHMC Visiting Scholars Program provides a unique opportunity for academic researchers working in the social, educational, and behavioral sciences to pursue their research in collaboration with PHMC researchers and practitioners.

Each year, the Research & Evaluation team works closely with Visiting Scholars to collaborate on new research, pursue grant funding in support of the research, and disseminate the findings of this research through publications. Scholars receive Visiting Scholar distinction and have access to data, resources, and accommodations; they can participate in departmental meetings, training opportunities, and other events as appropriate.

This year’s scholars include: Christine M. Forke, Ph.D., MSN, CRPN, teaching faculty in the Master of Public Health Program at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania; Matthew Hiller, Ph.D., Associate Professor in the Department of Criminal Justice at Temple University; Sylvia Morrison, Ed.D., Assistant Professor in the Division of Education, Health and Social Work at the University of the District of Columbia; and Marva E. Williams, Ph.D., research consultant with CDFI Friendly and an adjunct at University of Pennsylvania and Rutgers-Camden.
