Howard is an Associate Professor in the School of Nursing at UC San Francisco. His focus areas include sociological theory; youth violence and adolescent health; race, ethnicity, and health inequality; and social change. The author of Race in the Hood: Conflict and Violence Among Urban Youth, he has examined the dynamics of racial violence. In Dealing With Danger: How Inner City Youth Cope with the Violence that Surrounds Them (forthcoming) he examines the production of youth violence and how urban adolescents think about and experience violence and trauma. Additionally, he was Co-Principal Investigator for the Center on Culture, Immigration and Youth Violence Prevention, one of the CDC's Academic Centers of Excellence in Youth Violence Prevention. He is on Prevention Institute’s UNITY team, working with U.S. cities to prevent violence and has led strategy development on violence and trauma prevention in locales across the country. Most recently he has researched trauma, particularly in the lives of urban youth, who tend to be youth of color, and will be releasing a book on the topic. He collaborates with Prevention Institute on its community-level trauma work and authored the sections about trauma in Prevention Institute’s landscape analysis for the Movember Foundation.
