Dr. Suzanne Randolph, Associate Professor in Family Science, accepted the Muriel R. Sloan Communtarian Award at the School of Public Health faculty retreat for her significant contributions to outreach programs in Maryland and its surrounding areas. Her outreach efforts involve the implementation of culturally appropriate programs to train and educate parents and early childhood educators on issues involving community violence and effective parenting, evaluation of a male caregiving advocacy support group, and evaluation of the Ward 8 Drug-Free Youth Coalition project. The Communitarian Award recognizes Muriel Sloan's desire to support faculty that assist in educating youth and families in public school systems.
