Office location and address
Jeanne Alhusen, PhD, CRNP, RN -- associate professor and assistant dean of research -- earned her BSN from Villanova University, her MSN from Duke University, and her PhD from Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Alhusen completed a post-doctoral fellowship at Johns Hopkins School of Nursing and Medicine in 2013. As a board-certified advanced practice family nurse practitioner, she brings extensive professional nursing experience with a particular interest in the health disparities in maternal and child health.
Dr. Alhusen’s research is focused on improving maternal mental health and, consequently, improving early childhood outcomes, particularly for families living in poverty. She is PI on a HRSA grant examining infant outcomes in mothers experiencing perinatal intimate partner violence. She received a K23 from NINR which is focused on understanding the biological and psychological underpinnings of maternal attachment and maternal depression. Additionally, she has current research support from AWHONN, the American Nurses Foundation, and Fahs-Beck to test an intervention incorporating self-management support for perinatal depression, and its influence on infant outcomes.
