PAU Faculty, Students and Alumni Share, Connect and Learn at 2019 APA Conference

Tuesday, August 27, 2019

Whether attending sessions, presenting posters and participating on panels, faculty, students and alumni made PAU proud at the 2019 American Psychological Association’s (APA) annual conference held earlier this month in Chicago. APA brings together 12,000 practitioners, scientists, educators and students to explore the most compelling issues in the discipline.

Over 25 PAU community members participated in 30 plus sessions — from symposiums and poster sessions to workshops and skill-building sessions — that explored a multitude of topics. Click here for a full list of PAU participants and their session topics.

A big congratulations goes to PAU’s Angely Piazza-Rodriguez, a third year Ph.D. student who won the Blue Ribbon Award for the Best Cross-Cultural Neuropsychological Abstract submitted by a student in Division 40, Society of Clinical Neuropsychology; Alexander Erickson, a fourth year doctoral student, who won top poster in Division 19, Society for Military Psychology; and Celeste Poe who previously was awarded APA’s Minority Fellowship Award.
