Dr. Jihee Woo Wins Grant Funding

Congratulations to our faculty member, Dr. Jihee Woo, for receiving Grant-in-Aid funds from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities in support of her project, “Unveiling the Shadows of Intersectional Discrimination Among Asian Women in Pink-Collar Occupations in Minnesota.” 
Her work examines the interplay of race and gender discrimination within pink-collar occupations in Minnesota— and ramifications for coping strategies, mental health, and health behaviors. The grant will be used to support Dr. Woo's collaborators, study participants, and the building of community coalitions.
Congratulations, Dr. Woo! We are so very #UMNProud of you!
