Rutgers: Doctoral Student Participates in Leadership Development Fellowship

Rutgers School of Public Health doctoral student, Ms. Kristen D. Krause, has been selected by Rutgers University to participate in the PreDoctoral Leadership Development Academy (PLDA) Fellowship Program.

Throughout the Fall 2019-Spring 2020 academic year, PLDA Fellows will engage in readings, discussions, events, and interact with Rutgers senior leadership and national higher education leaders. The program is designed to equip Rutgers graduate students as leaders in the academic community.

Ms. Krause is currently a PhD candidate in the Department of Health Behavior, Society, and Policy whose research focuses on HIV, aging, and resilience. She is the manager of the  Center for Health, Identity, Behavior and Prevention Studies (CHIBPS), a nationally recognized center for the study of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer or questioning (LGBTQ) health with a focus on the disparities of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), substance use, and mental health burden. Ms. Krause is also the Managing Editor of Behavioral Medicine.

“I’m incredibly excited for this amazing opportunity to learn more about the higher education landscape and meet other colleagues from Rutgers University while also representing the Rutgers School of Public Health,” says Ms. Krause. “As always, a special thanks goes to incredible mentor Dr. Perry N. Halkitis, Dean of the Rutgers School of Public Health, for his support and guidance!”
