Emma Hill

Adjunct Assistant Evaluator

As a former LEND Trainee and current graduate student in the social work department at UMaine, I am excited to be serving as an adjunct assistant evaluator for this program. My professional and personal interests revolve around using qualitative research to document and raise up less-heard voices, creating housing and health equity for those living in group homes, providing trauma informed psychotherapy for adults with IDD, and learning how best to use my many privileges in the fight for racial and disability justice.

Projects

The NH and ME Leadership in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities Program (NH-ME LEND) is a collaboration among Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth, the College of Health and Human Services at the University of New Hampshire, and the Center for Community Inclusion and Disability Studies/UCED at the University of Maine-Orono. The purpose of NH-ME LEND is to improve the health of children and youth with neurodevelopmental disabilities by preparing leaders to enter the field of maternal and child health.
