Program Coordinator, Community and Urban Health
Amber received her bachelor’s degree in Public Health from Temple University and her Master of Public Health degree from George Washington University. Her studies have focused on examining existing programs that aim to reduce disparities among African American maternal outcomes to make informed recommendations on how to design and coordinate programs that are effective, equitable and human-centered and to also identify systems and policies that continue to contribute to racial disparities in health outcomes. After spending four years in Washington D.C. serving as a prenatal services program manager at a Federally Qualified Health Center, Amber returned to her home state of New Jersey to use her extensive research and professional experience to serve communities there that continue to face significant disparities in health outcomes. She has an extensive background in program implementation and evaluation of maternal child health, nutrition education, substance use disorder and housing services programs. Amber loves spending time with her family, traveling to the Caribbean, and is a huge sports fan. To contact Amber, please email [email protected] or call 609-394-4094.
