Dr. Rodgers focuses on adolescent health promotion in low-income urban communities. Her research empirically examines protective and risk factors for adolescent problem behaviors and the conceptualization of resilience in said communities. Ultimately, Dr. Rodgers intends to utilize the findings from her research to develop interventions that promote the healthy, adaptive and successful development of urban, low-income youth of color through not only decreasing or eliminating problem behaviors but also increasing strengths and promoting resilience.
