Johns Hopkins School of Nursing (JHSON) Professor Nancy Glass, PhD, MPH, RN, FAAN, has received two grants totaling $2.2 million to fund the development of nationally accessible, culturally diverse, and age-appropriate resources to help protect survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault across the lifespan.

The grants will help Glass build on her myPlan safety decision app, a tool to help survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV) understand their level of danger and make personalized plans for safety. Glass has been a principal investigator of eleven federally funded research projects to improve safety, health, and economic security, and address gender inequality in diverse community and clinic settings. She will also serve as principal investigator on two new studies funded by her grants.

A two-year, $1.2 million grant will fund Advancing National Tools and Resources for Technology Initiatives in Victim Services in collaboration with Arizona State University and the National Domestic Violence Hotline to address a critical need across the country for a comprehensive database of resources including legal aid, financial and employment programs, health care, safe housing, child protection, and university and college services. The grant is funded by the Department of Justice Office for Victims of Crime.

A three-year, $1 million grant will fund Adapting and Testing the myPlan App to Prevent Dating Violence with Adolescents in collaboration with the University of Missouri-Columbia funded by the Centers for Disease Control. The initiative targets 15- to 17-year-olds as an age when awareness and understanding of healthy relationships are being built. Researchers will enroll 600 adolescents and measure risk for severe and lethal violence and develop strategies for integrating the myPlan app into established education programs and policies.

Glass is the Independence Chair in Nursing Education at JHSON and Associate Director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health. To learn more about Glass’s $2.2 million in grants to support funding for preventing sexual and domestic violence, visit here.
