Summer Research Fellows presented at the annual AACAP meeting in Chicago last October

Summer Research Fellows: Christopher Viamontes and Andrew Rylaarsdam
Summer Research Fellows: Christopher Viamontes and Andrew Rylaarsdam

Over the summer we housed two AACAP (American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry) Summer Research Fellows which is a national award for medical students and mentors to apply for funded research internship over the summer. One student worked with Dr. Edwin Cook – Christopher Viamontes, UIC COM and one in the Pediatric Stress and Anxiety Disorders Clinic with Dr. Kelley Volpe, Dr. Liza Suarez and Lauren Cox, LCSW –Andrew Rylaarsdam, Midwestern University. They participated in research over the summer and presented at the annual AACAP meeting in Chicago this past month. It is an honor to have one of these students at an institution and super rare to have two!
