Research Interests

Prior to Marquette, Dr. Haglund was a nurse and then a nurse practitioner. In both roles, she cared for children and families in the City of Milwaukee, many of whom experienced marginalization and oppression due to poverty, structural racism, and other forms of discrimination. This work sensitized her to the depth and severity of pressing social and health needs. She acknowledges and stands in solidarity with every community that experiences inequalities, especially communities of color.  Over her career as a nurse, she honed core beliefs that have informed her research and scholarship namely, people -- including children and adolescents -- are expert on their own lives; peoples' strengths are sources for solutions; and context matters. Today, she is a community-engaged researcher specialized in qualitative and arts-based methods and interventions.  Her program of research has generated knowledge and interventions to advance health equity and to facilitate optimal health and psychosocial outcomes for children, adolescents and adults.  Her research studies build on the strengths of populations to promote healthy communities, positive youth development, healthy interpersonal relationships, violence prevention, and risk behavior reduction among other topics.
