Jarreed Ivanich

As a PhD student in sociology, the focal point of Jerreed's research interest centers on racial disparities, primarily American Indian and Alaskan Native (AIAN) populations. Jerreed earned his master's degree in criminal justice/criminology at Georgia State University where his thesis on American Indian Suicide has since won first place at The 2016 Society for the Study of Social Problems (SSSP) annual meeting for the Society and Mental Health Division graduate Student paper competition and was recently accepted for publication. Jerreed is currently a graduate research assistant at the Research, Evaluation & analysis for Community Health (REACH) lab working under the direction of Drs. Les Whitbeck and Kirk Dombrowski. Presently, Jerreed will continue working with Dr. Whitbeck on implementing a culturally-adapted family-centered substance prevention program among multiple reservations in the Northern-plains. Jerreed is also collaborating with multiple faculty across the country on American Indian and Alaskan Native health and social network analysis. He hopes to continue doing work on health and social network analysis among American Indian and Alaskan Native communities as he prepares for dissertation.
