Trenette Clark Goings
Professor Trenette Clark Goings was recently invited to serve as a standing member on a scientific review panel for the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The highly selective appointment is a significant honor given that only 3.2% of all NIH reviewers are Black and even fewer are social workers. Goings, the Sandra Reeves Spears and John B. Turner Distinguished Professor of Social Work, has gained national recognition for her achievements as a scholar in the substance use field since joining the School in 2010. Her work focuses broadly on reducing health disparities among racial and ethnic minorities.
