Charnielle Desiderio


Research Program Assistant

I have always had a strong desire in helping others. Serving those in need has become my life's mission and I hope to give back to our communities by addressing the many health disparities affecting our people and to promote health and longevity. I am inspired about the work I do because I feel like I am making a difference every day. 


Charnielle received a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology & Human Services from Fort Lewis College and minored in Psychology. She has been working with Johns Hopkins Center for American Indian Health as a Research Program Assistant since August 2018. She works on three behavioral health projects: the Southwest HUB for American Indian Youth Suicide Prevention, NativeVision, and Family Spirit Nurture - Preventing Early Childhood Obesity. All three projects greatly benefit Navajo communities that surround Shiprock, New Mexico.
