As we begin the semester, we're highlighting Bryn Mawr's newest faculty members. The College supports faculty excellence in both research and teaching.
Assistant Professor of Social Work Tamarah Moss
Moss' main research interests are threefold: 1) evaluation in community practice and health service delivery; 2) health equity among pregnant adolescents, LGBTQ+ and HIV positive communities; 3) international social work and social work education.
She is currently the primary investigator for a demonstration project designed to advance hospital victim services for youth victims of sex trafficking, and those at risk in Washington, DC. Children’s National Medical Center is the prime recipient for this work. Funded is by the Office of Victims of Crimes, Department of Justice. Moss was selected as a Scholar for the Leaders in Equitable Evaluation and Diversity (LEEAD) Scholar Program 2019-2020. This program was pioneered by Annie E. Casey Foundation and is currently being coordinated by Change Matrix, under the Expanding the Bench (ETB) portfolio. The mission of ETB is to provide a platform and support for diverse evaluators and consumers of evaluation to value, practice and promote culturally responsive and equitable evaluation.
