Affiliation: Michigan State University
Current position/Level: 4th year ECO-Community Psychology Ph.D. student
CERA: Rome, briefly walk us through a typical day in your current position.
Rome: I have the privilege of working in a research lab with Pennie Foster-Fishman focusing on areas of school readiness for K-12 grades. Additionally, as a research assistant, I get to better understand how various communities are addressing areas regarding social determinants of health. After my research responsibilities have ended for the day, I get to work with international partners to plan Anidasco 360's, 2018 summer "Actperience". Anidasco 360 is my nonprofit organization and "Actperience" is a term I created to reflect the active learning and civic engagement that take place during our immersion leadership experiences.
