I am the Scholarship Director for the Joan C Edwards School of Medicine (JCESOM) and the Appalachian Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (ACTSI) at Marshall University. In my capacity as the Scholarship Director at JCESOM, I am in charge of scholarship development for junior faculty clinical and basic science, clinical fellows, and basic science post-doctoral fellows, medical and graduate students. We have established Scholarship Development clinics which are offered on an individual or team basis as needed. I provide assistance for development of abstracts and manuscripts. I also identify preliminary work at JCESOM that has potential for peer reviewed publication to promote scholarship by students, residents, and faculty. Additionally, I work with the ACTSI team to identify appropriate funding opportunities, grant development, and submission and evaluation of peer reviews.
