Marija Bogic (pronounced “Muh-REE-yuh Boh-gitch”), PhD, is a research psychologist with a PhD from Queen Mary University of London. Her research experience, including the research for her PhD thesis, is focused on addressing mental health needs and disparities in marginalized populations, including refugees, immigrants, and ethnic minorities, and identifying best practices in access, quality and appropriateness of health care for these populations. Currently, she coordinates projects within Partnerships for Native Health that focus on suicide prevention in American Indian and Alaska Native populations. These studies are extremely important given that these communities experience the highest rates of suicide of any racial and ethnic group in the United States. Outside of work, Marija loves spending time with family and friends, traveling and capturing her adventures on camera.
