Bittersweet News from the Lab

It is with bittersweet emotion that we announce that our dear team member Jessica Jackson will be leaving the AAKOMA Project as of June 1, 2017. During her time with the lab, Jessica completed a number of community based presentation for African American/Black communities, she co-lead a webinar on integrated care and she supported a PCORI funded award and learned more about the practical application of CBPR and Faith Based Mental Health Promotion in PCOR and CER. We are so proud to say that Jessica matched for her pre-doctoral clinical internship at the University of California, Los Angeles Counseling and Psychological Services where she will complete her training for a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology. Jessica was very productive while in the AAKOMA lab, in addition to completing multiple presentations, she completed (and submitted for review) a manuscript about cultural considerations for integrated behavioral health care and she is almost finished with a second manuscript (co-authored by 3 other members of the AAKOMA lab, including Dr. Alfiee) focused on outcomes related to our GHUCCTS funded CBPR work.
