Millicent N. Robinson, MSW, MPH
Millicent N. Robinson, MSW, MPH has worked with CCPH for the past 4 years in a number of capacities, including a graduate student intern, Programs Assistant, and now as a Programs Consultant. During her time with CCPH, she has collaborated on and provided administrative management for a number of initiatives, including a PCORI Town Hall meeting on patient engagement in research, the Structural Inequalities and Introduction to Structural Racism intensive, a Community-Led Research Review convening, evaluation of various projects, development of reports, supervision of interns, and curriculum design. She earned her B.A. in Psychology (2015), and a dual MSW-MPH degree (2017) from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Millicent is currently a fourth-year doctoral student in the Department of Community Health Sciences at UCLA.
Millicent’s research aims to clarify how experiencing chronic stressors and racism across the life course shapes physical and mental health among Black women, and to assess how forms of culturally-relevant coping, such as Superwoman Schema and John Henryism, may help to buffer or diminish these harmful health outcomes. Millicent wants to ensure that the findings from her research are accessible to communities because optimal health and well-being cannot be achieved if this information and other resources are available to a select few, which ultimately requires the dismantling of oppressive systems.
