Congratulations to Hillman Scholar Harry Adynski, who was awarded $52,000 through the Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Individual Predoctoral Fellowship to study the impact of social adversity and parenting characteristics on emotional regulation across early childhood and the impact of emotional regulation on school performance outcomes. The results of Adynski’s study will be used to inform nursing interventions aimed at promoting well-being among children.
The funding will support Adynski’s continued training and completion of his dissertation project, which is entitled “The Role of Social Adversity on Trajectories of Child Emotional Health Regulation.” This project will leverage secondary data from the Durham Child Development Study to generate important knowledge related to the conditions in which childhood emotional health dysregulation arise and identify potential modifiable factors to inform nursing child-parent interventions.
He will work with the following mentorship team:
- Harry Adynski: Principal Investigator/NIH Individual Fellow
- Dr. Hudson Santos: Primary Sponsor, School of Nursing
- Dr. Cathi Propper: Co-Sponsor, Frank Porter Graham
- Dr. Linda Beeber, Dissertation Committee Member, School of Nursing
- Dr. John Gilmore, Dissertation Committee Member, School of Medicine
- Dr. Baiming Zou, Dissertation Committee Member, School of Nursing
This funding will support Adynski in carrying out this important work from July 2021 through the end of 2022.
Congratulations to Harry and his mentoring team!
