UM Gonzalez-Guarda wins grant from Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
Date:9/7/2011

Coral Gables, FL. Rosa Gonzalez-Guarda, Ph.D., R.N., an assistant professor at the University of Miami, School of Nursing & Health Studies, has won a competitive grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) to develop, manualize, and test an intervention for preventing teen dating violence among Hispanics. Gonzalez-Guarda is one of just 12 nurse educators from around the country to receive the three-year $350,000 Nurse Faculty Scholar award this year. It is given to junior faculty who show outstanding promise as future leaders in academic nursing. The grant period begins next month.

"Being named a RWJF Nurse Faculty Scholar is a huge honor," Gonzalez-Guarda said. "As a Nurse Faculty Scholar, I am looking forward to being connected to other scholars as well as an extraordinary network of mentors and resources. I am doubly thrilled because so many of my professional role models through the years have had a connection to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Under the program's guidance, I hope to become a better faculty member and leader in my institution and area of research."

For her research project, JOVEN: Juntos Opuestos a la Violencia Entre Novios [Together Against Teen Dating Violence], Gonzalez-Guarda will develop a community-based participatory intervention addressing the prevention of teen dating violence among Hispanic ninth graders. The first phase of her study will include a community forum and focus groups with students, parents and school staff to assess their opinions and perceptions regarding what should be included in an effective teen dating violence prevention program. Gonzalez-Guarda will develop and manualize the intervention based on this input. In the second phase of the study she will implement the intervention and assess its impact.

"Hispanic youth are at a higher risk for teen dating violence and in the future face greater risk of domestic violence," Gonzalez-Guarda said. "From my previous experiences
