In her video about her experiences at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Dr. Chen discusses her interest in researching child maltreatment and domestic violence. She was located in the Office of Noncommunicable Diseases, Injury, and Environmental Health, specifically at the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control. Within this office, she is a part of the Child Maltreatment and Sexual Violence Team. While working at the CDC, Ms. Chen has worked on two specific projects: “Research on the Efficacy and Feasibility of Essentials for Parenting Toddlers and Preschoolers” and “Implementation of Essentials for Childhood: Safe, Stable, Nurturing Relationships and Environments.” She has focused on creating safe environments for child to live in and for parents to take care of their children. The flexible and professional environment of the CDC in Atlanta left a great impression on her. During her grant period, Dr. Chen has been able to participate in several webinars and conferences specializing in different areas of child treatment and development. (by Tom Shattuck)
