Jacqueline (Jackie) Moses, Ph.D., is a postdoctoral research fellow in the Institute for Juvenile Research and the Center for Clinical and Translational Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Dr. Moses earned her undergraduate degree at the University of California, Los Angeles and completed her doctoral training in clinical psychology at Florida International University. She completed her predoctoral internship at the University of California, San Francisco. Her research interests focus on strengths-based, contextually relevant, and culturally accessible models of mental health care and pathways to higher education for Black youth and families living in urban poverty. Specifically, her work aims to (a) center youth, family, and community voice to increase the reach and relevance of services in youth-service systems (e.g., after school programs, juvenile justice, community-based organizations, community mental health agencies); (b) leverage research-practice-policy partnerships to improve services for Black families; and (c) support capacity building in youth workforce by incorporating low burden mental health tools in youth-service systems’ routine care.
