Saba Khalid, a master’s degree student in counseling, has been named a Global Health Equity Scholar by Johns Hopkins University’s Alliance for a Healthier World.
Recognized by the program for her focus on gender equity and justice, Saba has worked for several years in research examining cross-cultural differences in mood and emotion regulation. She is interested in further examining acculturation stress in refugee and immigrant populations and adapting evidence-based mental health interventions in a culturally sensitive manner.
The announcement marked the second cohort of Global Health Equity Scholars: students selected from across the Johns Hopkins for their diverse experiences and passion for health equity. The scholars will work on projects housed under the Alliance’s four thematic areas, ranging from analyzing gender transformative policies to fostering open science.
