Prof. Rebecca Rouland collaborates with Izzy Kimber '21 on postpartum depression research

The SPARK Grant is just one opportunity that makes it possible for faculty to work with students on robust research experiences. Prof. Rebecca Rouland, Ph.D. (social work), pictured (on right) with Izzy, collaborated with Izzy Kimber (social work, '21) during summer '19. Dr. Rouland's research focuses on how to best identify, screen for, understand, and treat postpartum depression.

Their Goal: Use the findings to promote evidence-based practices among all types of health care providers who work with parents experiencing postpartum depression.

Izzy says that the experience was helpful as she prepares for graduate school. "Doing something that interests me and that I am passionate about is when I do my best work. Knowing that fuels me to follow what I love, even if it will take a long time to reach all of my goals," she says. She hopes to someday initiate her own research projects that move her towards her future career goal of being a forensic interviewer. 

Honor: Izzy was selected for the 2019 New York State Social Work Student of the Year Award
