The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has awarded Dr. Darrell L. Hudson, assistant professor at the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis, a 24-month grant through the foundation’s New Connections program.
The $100,000 grant will allow Dr. Hudson to conduct a secondary data analysis to examine the relationship between social context, stress, mental health, and obesity using data drawn from the Missouri Family Study, a longitudinal study of African-American and White families from the state of Missouri.
New Connections is a national program designed to introduce new scholars to the foundation and expand the diversity of perspectives that inform its programming. New Connections seeks early- to mid-career scholars who are historically underrepresented ethnic or racial minorities, first-generation college graduates, or individuals from low-income communities.
