Two Project L/EARN mentors honored at 20th Anniversary Conference
Dr. Kathleen Pottick, Professor and Associate Dean for Faculty Development at the Rutgers School of Social Work, and Professor at the Institute for Health, Health Care Policy and Aging Research, was honored for her ongoing role as mentor to a stream of Project L/EARN interns. Dr. Pottick has often worked with her interns over a period of years, having her more seasoned interns teach that summer's interns about the data, coding, and literature. She has taken a number of her former interns to the youth mental health research conference in Tampa, having brought them on board as co-authors on her papers. Dr. Pottick has also shared with many other mentors her approaches to guiding students in research and the graduate school application process.

Dr. Dorothy Gaboda, Associate Director for Data Analysis at the Center for State Health Policy, was honored for her many contributions to Project L/EARN. She has mentored many summer interns, and supervised several undergraduate honors theses. Dr. Gaboda has also trained quite a few as post-baccalaureate researchers at the Center for State Health Policy, guiding them as they spend a year or two working on data preparation, literature reviews, report writing, and other tasks. This work experience has proved invaluable not only in building their skills and developing a research portfolio, but also in helping them decide on the next steps in their graduate education and career development.
