SHARON MORRISON, MSPH, PhD
Associate Member / Academic Liaison (Non-voting member), CAC
Founding Member, Montagnard/Southeast Asian Community Disparities Research Network (formerly, Montagnard Health Disparities Research Network)
I am a community-engaged researcher and teacher, who works with a variety of refugee and immigrant groups in Greensboro, NC. I use community-based participatory research approaches and community-engaged teaching methods for understanding complex health and social problems. The goal of my work is to support health, well-being and empowerment of Montagnard and other refugee/immigrant communities. I continue to mentor youth and college students who represent next-generation professionals and “change agents” in these communities.
I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Public Health Education at the University of North Carolina, a Research Fellow with the Center for New North Carolinians (CNNC) and a founding member of the Montagnard Health Disparities Research Network. I currently serve as an Associate Member/Academic Liaison for the Community Advisory Committee of the Montagnard Dega Association, Inc.
I grew up on the island of Jamaica, immigrated to the U.S. and have travelled to several countries where I recognized how similar our hopes, aspirations and struggles are as global neighbors.
