Graduate Psychology Student Selected as 2020 Learning Experiences to Advance Practice Scholar
Morgan Hill, a doctoral candidate in clinical psychology, has been selected as one of 10 scholars participating in the 2020 Learning Experiences to Advance Practice education and mentorship program as part of the Justice Community Opioid Innovation Network (JCOIN).
Her work focuses on understanding the unique interactions between psychopathy and other forms of psychopathology (e.g., PTSD) with the goal of using this knowledge to refine the understanding of psychopathy in relation to relevant psycho-legal variables of interest.
JCOIN is a groundbreaking initiative led by the National Institute on Drug Abuse and funded through the National Institutes of Health's Helping to End Addiction Long-termSM Initiative. Designed to advance scientific knowledge on effective policies, practices, and interventions, the initiative aims to expand their use into daily practice within health and justice settings.
In early 2020, JCOIN launched the LEAP education program to support investigators and scholars with training and knowledge to conduct research and build research capacity within justice and health settings.
The LEAP program aims to advance the capacity and diversity of high impact research for populations involved with the health and criminal justice systems through specialized training and skill-development curriculums.
