Doctoral Students Win Graduate Professional Council Research Awards

Two HDFS Doctoral Students won first place honors for their presentations in this year’s Graduate Professional Council (GPC) Research and Creative Activities Forum. Alaina Wilson took first place in the Social Sciences, Quantitative category for her work Pandemic play: How are children playing during the COVID-19 pandemic and why? Shannon Dier took first place in the Social Sciences, Qualitative category for her work “Big Bad Germie”: Exploring how parents talk to young children about COVID-19.  We are so proud of these first-year students (under the mentorship of Assistant Professor, Dr. Rachel Thibodeau-Nielson) for making a great contribution to the field and their timely work exploring the impacts of the pandemic crisis on children.
