THE CLARK PARENT & CHILD NETWORK
Jessie plays a critical role in managing the research activities of the Clark Parent & Child Network Prenatal-Neonatal Pillar, including overseeing enrollment, data collection and data cleaning. She aims to establish research practices to complement existing perinatal mental health clinical work in the District of Columbia.
