Peggy Dolcini, Ph.D., serves as director of the Youth and Young Adult Core at the Hallie Ford Center for Healthy Children and Families. Her research addresses social developmental factors and their impact on health behavior during adolescence, with an emphasis on vulnerable youth. Her recent work addressing sexual health issues among youth has identified the important contributions of naturally occurring information networks in the transmission of information and skills to youth and resulted in new approaches for program delivery that more closely match community capacity.

Peggy has a long history of NIH funded research that spans basic, intervention and translation research. She has more than two decades of experience conducting community-based research and collaborating with agencies in impoverished urban neighborhoods. She has been recognized for her contributions to the development of mentoring programs for scientists from under-represented groups and serves on the scientific advisory board of an NIH funded mentoring program at Columbia University.
