Mary Rogers Gillmore is a Clinical Nursing Professor and Senior Research Consultant at the Hahn School of Nursing and Health Science. She received her B.S. in Nursing from DePaul University (1968), Her M.S. in Nursing from the University of Michigan (1970), and an M.A. (1974) and Ph.D. (1983) in Sociology from the University of Washington. Dr. Gillmore has been a member of faculties of schools of nursing (Parkland College, Seattle University) and schools of social work (University of Washington, Arizona State University) since 1970. Her research interests focus on adolescent risk behaviors, particularly those that place adolescents at risk of acquiring sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV/AIDS, unintended pregnancies, and substance use. In collaboration with colleagues, Dr. Gillmore has engaged in research that identifies risk and protective factors for engaging in these risky behaviors, and developing and testing theory and empirically-based interventions to reduce these risky behaviors. She and her colleagues have also conducted an NIH-funded long-term longitudinal study of pregnant and parenting teenagers to describe the early life course of these adolescent mothers and their babies.
