In this episode, Sara Hairgrove, a public health analyst at RTI International and a Masters in Public Health Student at Maryland University, talks with Dr. Lynn Fiellin, a Professor of Medicine at the Yale University School of Medicine, the Yale Child Study Center, and the Yale School of Public Health, and a found director of the play2PREVENT lab at Yale University, and Ms. Lily Hoerner, a Postgraduate Research Associate in the play2PPREVENT lab at Yale University and a Masters in Community Psychology student at the University of New Haven about the research they are currently conducting in school settings, their unique experiences that led them to prevention science, the challenges of conducting prevention research in schools and how building true partnerships and collaborations with schools is not only rewarding but key to successfully conducting their research. Their advice to future prevention scientists is to pursue the things they are passionate about and be open to opportunities that they may not have planned for or ever thought about pursuing.
