Professional Psychology awarded $9,000 grant

A $9,000 grant is awarded by the Juan Young Trust to support a collaboration between the School of Professional Psychology and the Multicultural Integrated Kidney Education (MIKE) Program.

Susan T. Li, Ph.D.

Susan Li, Director of the Child and Adolescent Track, School of Professional Psychology (SPP) at Pacific University, will serve as the collaboration's primary investigator.

Funded by the Juan Young Trust, this grant supports an emerging partnership between Pacific University and Multicultural Integrated Kidney Education Program (MIKE Program) and will enable MIKE Program to demonstrate and disseminate the positive outcomes of the program, as well as to continue MIKE Program objectives with assistance from Pacific students and faculty. Pacific is contributing to MIKE program expansion through SPP students’ mentoring of youth, by providing academic support for mentors through course credit, and through utilization of resources to facilitate program trainings. The project will serve 20-30 youth, 6-7 Pacific and community student mentors, and will analyze 4-5 years of data.
