Paris Wheeler, counseling psychology doctoral student, is the recipient of a competitive CDC funded paid summer research fellowship.
The 2019 Dr. James A. Ferguson Emerging Infectious Diseases Research Initiatives for Student Enhancement (RISE) Fellowship Program is a ten-week summer program funded by the CDC. The fellowship aims to provide educational and professional development opportunities for fellows interested in infectious diseases, public health, mental health, maternal and child health and/or health disparities research. Fellows work with research mentors on projects related to their area of interest and participate in weekly research and public health seminars. At the end of the 10 week program, fellows present their research at the Ferguson Fellowship Program Symposia. Paris will be completing the fellowship in Baltimore, MD for the summer.
