Research Interests

Antionette McCray is a Baltimore native who has worked in the field of Human Services for the past 10 years. She enjoys working with underserved populations in hopes of making a difference in the lives of people she serves. She most recently worked as a Patient Navigator at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine on a National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) Clinical Trials Network study entitled Project Hope 0049 (Hospitals as Opportunity for Prevention and Engagement for HIV- infected, substance users).  Prior to Project Hope, she worked on the Retention in Care Study at Johns Hopkins that was sponsored by the US Center for Disease Control.

Ms. McCray is serving as a Patient Navigator at Friends Research Institute on the NIDA-funded study entitled “A Randomized Trial of Interim Methadone and Patient Navigation Initiated in Jail.” The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of three approaches to opioid use disorder treatment started in the Baltimore City Detention Center. She will be working with Drs. Robert Schwartz, Jerome Jaffe, Shannon Mitchell and Sharon Kelly. She is excited to be a part of this research project.
