Kimberly King, M.P.H.
Program Manager for the Center of Excellence on the Social Determinants of Mental Health

I have spent the last seven years researching health disparities, specializing in community based participatory research, program development and grants management. I have developed and implemented a number of community-academia programs driven by community residents, engaged and cultivated numerous partnerships with community residents, community based organizations, academic partners, faith and political leaders, private donors and trustees. My interests are in engaging community residents at all stages of the research process and catalyze bidirectional and equitable partnerships. 

As the Program Manager for the Center of Excellence on the Social Determinants of Mental Health, I am responsible for interfacing with external constituencies and supporting the activities of the Center. I assist with building community capacity for addressing the social conditions that impact mental health and bridge the gap between public health and mental health. I support the concept development, program management, evaluation and research facilitated by the Center. I assume a leadership role in the integration of mental health considerations into the practice of Health Impact Assessments.
