Farrah Jacquez, Ph.D.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist and Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Cincinnati. My research focuses on community-partnered approaches to health equity. Using a community-based participatory research (CBPR) orientation to my work, I partner with community members to do research with real-world benefit. Current projects include family-focused stress interventions for Latino immigrants (funded by Greater Cincinnati United Way), community-partnered approaches to early childhood wellness in two Cincinnati neighborhoods (funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation), and engaging youth in CBPR around drug abuse and addiction (funded by an NIH Science Education Partnership Award). I am fortunate to serve as a research mentor to clinical psychology doctoral students, master’s level students in applied psychology, and undergraduates across campus. Our lab has a strong interdisciplinary focus, including collaborations with sociologists, geographers, nutritionists, an other academics that engage communities in health equity research. Our mission is to bring together students, faculty, and community partners to conduct scientifically rigorous yet community relevant research.
