Three of our doctoral candidates have received 2023-24 graduate school fellowships

Yue Zhang has been awarded the Mary Erlanger Graduate Fellowship. This fellowship encourages exceptional graduate-level study in any and all areas related to aging. Yue's research concentrates on the mechanisms through which social events and relationships produce inequality and influence health and the speed of aging.  

Sarah Groh has been selected to receive the J. William Fanning Fellowship, which provides support to students in good standing with excellent leadership qualities.  Sarah's leadership qualities have been demonstrated via a number of roles (e.g., SGSS President, Co-Associate Lab Manager in LaSSI, Project Manager in LaSSI, Council Member of GSA, Committee Member for multiple ASA organizations and departmental DEI subcommittee). Sarah's dissertation research focuses on patient-provider interactions and lesbian women's healthcare access and health decision making.

Chelsey Adams is the recipient of the M. Terry and Elizabeth S. Coffey Graduate Fellowship, which is awarded to outstanding students in a graduate program. For her dissertation, she is currently conducting ethnographic research that invesitgates racial trauma and economic stress among rural African Americans in Georgia. 

Congratulations to Yue, Sarah, and Chelsey!
