Ro Nadreau (they/them) received their Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of California, Davis and recently graduated from San Diego State University with their Master of Public Health in Health Promotion & Behavioral Science. They have a background in clinical research for Alzheimer’s disease, county-level community health engagement, and action-oriented, community-engaged research focused on LGBTQ+ adolescents and youth experiencing housing insecurity. Ro is interested in addressing mental health stigma, and health inequities in underserved communities, more specifically LGBTQ+ communities of color. They hope to expand their knowledge in psychometric measure development and evaluation, and bolster their skills in methodology and statistical analysis. Throughout this program, Ro hopes to learn more about data-informed discussions around the measurement of mental health and emotional well-being.
Their fellowship project aims to develop and evaluate potential measures of mental health and emotional well-being (EWB), using data from the Research and Development Survey and National Health Interview Survey to determine if measurement strategies effectively capture constructs related to EWB.
