Dr. Fromm Reed has worked as an Assistant Professor at National Louis University (NLU) since 2005 where she developed the University’s first PhD program. Dr. Fromm Reed currently co-directs the Ph.D. program in Community Psychology at NLU and also works with students in the psychology Masters and undergraduate programs. Before that she worked with non-profit agencies at both the national and local level on issues related to children and families. Much of her research examined how collective efficacy and social capital may play a role in buffering against child maltreatment and how social marketing may be applied to this and similar topics. Currently, her research is primarily focused on health promotion through engaging communities in exercise and nutrition activities.
