Arrival of Dr. Heejin Lim, RCKC's 2015 Visiting Scholar


We are pleased to announce the arrival of Dr. Heejin Lim, one of RCKC's Visiting Scholars for 2015. Dr. Lim is a Research Fellow at the National Youth Policy Institute in Seoul, Korea and a former Lecturer in the Department of Health Education at Ehwa Woman's University, also located in Seoul. Dr. Lim received a PhD in Health Education from the University of Tokyo in 2001.

During the upcoming year, Dr. Lim plans to examine school health promotion programs in the states of New York and New Jersey. In particular, she would like to analyze the coordinated efforts of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and U.S. schools in order to help improve health education in the school system in Korea. Dr. Lim worked as a Research Fellow in the Youth Activities and Competency office at the National Youth Policy Institute, which is a Korean government agency. Incidentally, RCKC's 2014 Visiting Scholar, Dr. Hyuncheol Kim, also worked at the National Youth Policy Institute.

We cordially welcome Dr. Heejin Lim, and we look forward to her tenure in the New York area.

Every year, RCKC invites at least one international scholar who conducts research on Korean Americans to stay in New York City for a year. We assist the visiting scholars by handling paperwork for visa applications and sharing our knowledge and information about local Korean communities and enclaves in the New York-New Jersey area. We also provide an office on the Queens College campus for the duration of the scholars' tenure here.
