Bio
Yoo-Jin Kang is new to the AU community and joined in late August 2018. She is a graduate of University of Maryland Baltimore County, where she focused on gender-based violence work. Her undergraduate research centers East Asian Students' Perspectives on Relationships and Violence. Yoo-Jin is passionate about health equity, specifically as it connects to racial justice. She approaches alcohol and drugs work through a holistic, reality-based approach and seeks to connect the AU community to non-biased, shame-free, and evidence-based alcohol and drug education and interventions. Prior to AU, Yoo-Jin worked at her local domestic violence center as a victim advocate and at The Center for Mind-Body Medicine as their National Programs Coordinator.
