Health Effects of Identity Denial

This summer, I will be piloting a study on the mental and physical health effects of identity denial among people with marginalized identities. I hope to analyze the effects of downplaying a visible marginalized identity and how this can have detrimental health consequences. I will also continue assisting graduate students and Professor Jacoby-Senghor with their various lab projects throughout the summer.

Message to Sponsor

Thank you for providing me with an opportunity to continue to engage in academic research within such a supportive lab this summer. I've learned so much working in the DJS lab over the past academic year and this summer opportunity will give me even more valuable experience in preparation for completing a senior honors thesis and graduate school in the near future. I could not be more grateful for this generous donation!
