APA Research Colloquium

Heather Joseph, DO, a PGY5 resident, has been selected by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) to participate in the 2016 Research Colloquium, which will be held at the 169th APA Annual Meeting in Atlanta, GA.  Dr. Joseph will participate in the component on Clinical Psychobiology.  

Dr. Joseph is active in the Child and Adolescent Fellowship program and the Psychiatry Research Pathway track in the Department of Psychiatry?s residency program. Her current work is a pilot study funded by the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry to investigate the association of parenting behaviors with temperament and psychiatric diagnoses in preschool-aged offspring of fathers with histories of childhood ADHD. 

Selection for this highly competitive program is determined by the APA Workgroup on Research Training, and is based on the individual?s credentials and their potential to develop a successful research career in academic psychiatry.  In addition to receiving support for her travel to the meeting, Dr. Joseph will have the opportunity to present her research at the meeting and to interact with some of the leading psychiatric researchers in her area of interest.
