Episode 15: Alfiee Breland-Noble, URM Mental Health, and the Greasy Pipeline

We are fortunate to be joined for this episode by both Alfiee Breland-Noble, Ph.D., MHS.c. and Jennifer Cass, Ph.D. while visiting Washington, D.C for the International Neuropsychological Society (INS) conference. Dr. Breland-Noble is a powerhouse, both in terms of research and clinical work, and is an Associate Professor at Georgetown University, where she helps run the Center for Trauma and the Community, and leads AAKOMA (African American Knowledge Optimized for Mindfully Healthy Adolescents). Dr. Cass is a pediatric neuropsychologist with vast experience working with both medically based and neurodevelopmental psychological issues and plays a vital role in training neuropsychologists at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio (Nationwide is on your side in part because of neuropsychologists like Dr. Cass).

We discussed a range of topics during this overly short Black History Month, including supporting access to mental health intervention for Black and other youth of color, and finding better ways to support people throughout the obstacle course known as training for academic and clinical work. Please join us!

Also including a picture of Shuri, because obviously.
