James P. Comer, MD, MPH
Dr. Comer developed the Comer Process, a method that enlists teams of different stakeholders to create a collaborative, no-fault, consensus-building atmosphere in schools. His publication record is prolific and reveals a consistent engagement in public discourse about children's health and development and race relations in America. One area his research focuses on is the intersection of child development, technological changes, and mentor/parent participation in educational success.
