Ganga Mahat, EdD, RN

Clinical Professor

Personal Statement

My clinical practice focuses on improving and maintaining the health of children and adolescents through my scholarly activities in schools and the Center for Urban Youth and Families (CUYF). In the recent past, my clinical practice included working with service affiliates locally at the Newark School System and internationally with school teachers and a researcher in Nepal. I have developed, implemented, and evaluated a peer HIV education program for high school students in both Newark, New Jersey and in Nepal. 
My current clinical practice and scholarship focuses on my work in the Center of Urban Youth and Families (CUYF).  I am one of the founding members of this center. The Center’s research foci are oral health, obesity, and pulmonary health. In this center, my long term goal as a clinician is to improve preschool children’s oral health and decrease the incidence of Early Childhood Caries (ECC).
