Dr. Alisa Lincoln, Kaleem Ahmid and HEIs Tyreke Gaston and Samhita Koduri Receive RISE Award

Dr. Alisa Lincoln, Kaleem Ahmid and HEIs Tyreke Gaston and Samhita Koduri won the RISE Focus Award for Ethically Informed research. 

“Ethically Informed Research Awards recognize RISE presentations that best incorporate attention to ethical considerations in research design and implementation, for example by addressing a significant ethical challenge, using value-sensitive project design, or demonstrating designing and implementing effective human research protocols. Sponsored by the College of Social Sciences and Humanities”

The project, The Trust Project, is Kaleem’s MPH capstone, and is in partnership with MIRA and the ACLU of MA. Their research aimed to study how social capital-related determinants of health impact the lives of undocumented and mixed-status communities in Massachusetts during the Trump presidency and the Covid-19 pandemic.
