Bloomberg Fellow

Jennifer Corser is an urgent care coordinator at the Calvert County Health Department in the Behavioral Health division in Prince Frederick, Maryland. Jennifer provides case management and recovery planning services to clients who have received services from Calvert Crisis Response. A significant proportion of these clients are among the youth population and present with various crises (e.g. victims of abuse, suicidal ideation and attempts, and self-harm). While serving their clients, Jennifer builds rapport to develop trust and create a non-judgmental working relationship with them and their support systems to ensure they adhere to treatment and follow through with resource recommendations. The continuum of care provided through the coordination and implementation of services from Jennifer’s role is essential to ensuring the health and safety of the clients and aims to prevent recurring crisis events.
