Anna Evanson graduated from the University of Washington in June 2019 with a BS in Psychology, a BA in Anthropology with a focus in human evolutionary biology, and a minor in American Indian Studies. She coordinates the CARE study, a trial of the Caring Contacts suicide prevention intervention with five native communities, managing the intervention and data collection. Before working at IREACH, she worked at the UW Social Cognitive Development lab, studying how prejudice is learned and shared in young children, and then at the Center for Suicide Prevention and Recovery at the UW School of Medicine. She plans to go to graduate school in the fields of psychology and public health. When not studying or working, she likes to spend time with her family in Central Oregon and exploring Seattle with friends and her cat.
