CYFC Scholar in Residence Focuses on Trans Community
In July, Extension Children, Youth & Family Consortium announced the first CYFC Scholar in Residence: Jenifer K. McGuire, Ph.D. Dr. McGuire is an associate professor in the department of family social science at the University of Minnesota. Over the two years of her residence, she will share important insights on research and community work happening in the trans community through statewide outreach, Lessons from the Field (a theme-based educational series) and eReview, our online publication that integrates research and practice expertise to improve services and promote children’s mental health.
Dr. McGuire is an internationally known expert for her work in trans youth research. Her research spans three unique domains, including clinic-based research with children and adolescents, school-based research with middle and high school-age youth, and family-based research with adolescents and young adults.
