Lori Stone, Psychology doctoral student

picture of Lori Stone"The opportunity to apply what I have learned during my graduate school tenure has been exciting, educational, and encouraging. There is a particular thrill in recognizing the ways in which my education allows me to contribute directly to improving something in my own community. The experience I have gained in the health synergy group taught me more about my discipline, more about myself, and more about what I have to offer once I graduate. This alone makes the experience invaluable; but, when it coexists with the chance to be an active participant in my community, the combination is unbeatable."
