Jones attends NIH grant writing boot camp

July 7, 2017

The Society for Research in Child Development selected Heather Jones, Ph.D., left, assistant professor of clinical psychology and faculty supervisor in the Primary Care Psychology Training Collaborative, and Fantasy Lozada, Ph.D., assistant professor of developmental psychology, as two of its 10 recipients of a competitive award to participate in the National Institutes of Health Grant Writing Boot Camp this summer. As participants, Jones and Lozada traveled to Washington, D.C., to work closely with a senior mentor and to receive extensive feedback on their research proposals during a two-day workshop. The grant Lozada submitted is called "Emotion Regulatory Flexibility: A Cultural and Emotional Competence Among African American Youth," and Jones' grant is called ''Developing an ADHD Health Communication Intervention for African Americans." The SRCD sponsors this event and it is funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
