Anthropology undergraduate students Emmily Mobley and Jean Ryu won awards for their research working with mentor Dr. Horan and were recently celebrated at the Randall’s Research Scholars Award Luncheon. Emmily is the student lead for a secondary data analysis project using the Alabama Providers Capacity Project survey data. She is examining perspectives of substance use disorder for pregnant people and females of reproductive age. Jean was the student lead on a case study project examining perineal trauma and interprofessional perinatal care. This paper is currently under review at Birth!
Meanwhile, Matthew Pappalardo (anthropology AMP student) was a nominee for the Student Employee of the Year for his work with Partners for Alabama Families and Communities – an emerging collaborative at UA that Dr. Horan co-leads with faculty across campus.
