Biography:

Hannah Milhorn is currently a Research Coordinator for the Department of Health Education and Behavior. She holds a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Maryland. Before coming to UF, she worked as a Research Assistant for the Center for Addictions, Personality, and Emotion Research (CAPER) at the University of Maryland where her primary project evaluated the effectiveness of soft commitment as a mechanism to prevent preference reversals in cigarette smokers. She was also involved in many other projects at CAPER, including a pilot study designed to test the efficacy of behavioral activation as a smoking cessation intervention in low-income populations, and a randomized control trial examining the efficacy of mindfulness meditation as a mechanism to reduce problem drinking among college students. Her responsibilities include participant recruitment, data collection and supervision of undergraduate research assistants. Her primary research interests focus on community-based intervention programs for low-income or minority populations and trauma survivors. She hopes to further examine these interests by pursuing a Ph.D. in Psychology.
