Congratulations, Janet!

Janet Cummings has won the AcademyHealth Best Dissertation Award!
Her dissertation, “Mental Health Counseling Use Among Adolescents: An Elaboration of the Role of Contextual Sociodemographic Characteristics,” found strong positive relationships between the socioeconomic status of the local area and the receipt of mental health counseling in clinical settings among adolescents, a relationship which was in part mediated by the availability of mental-health professionals.   Adolescents living in socioeconomically disadvantaged census tracts were more likely to receive school-based counseling, suggesting that schools may be the best setting in which to provide mental health services if the objective is to reduce the unmet need for mental health care among adolescents living in disadvantaged and/or ethnically diverse communities.

Congratulations also to Ninez Ponce, the chair of her committee, as well as to the other members, Carol Aneshensel, Bob Kaplan, and Vickie Mays.

Janet is now an Assistant Professor at Emory.

(Although this is the first time a UCLA student has won the award, it will not be the last.)

    Thanks for revealing your ideas right here. The other issue is that whenever a problem occurs with a computer motherboard,
    people should not have some risk regarding repairing the item themselves because if
    it is not done right it can lead to irreparable damage to the full
    laptop. In most cases, it is safe to approach the dealer of the laptop with the repair of motherboard.
    They have technicians who definitely have an expertise in dealing with
    laptop motherboard complications and can have
    the right diagnosis and accomplish repairs.
