Heather McClure is a broadly trained prevention scientist with expertise in the social and cultural determinants of learning and health among marginalized populations, with a particular focus on Latinx immigrant youth and families. She uses multi-method approaches to gain insights into individual, family, and community-level influences on learning and critically-related phenomena (e.g., mental, behavioral, and physical health) that can either create risk for educational failure or promote engaged learning and well-being over the life course. As Director of the Center for Equity Promotion (CEQP), she works closely with our affiliated scientists who lead federally-funded education and health research projects.
