The Clendenin Scholars Program has allowed me to study the interplay between social work and the medical field. I am grateful for the opportunity to complete an internship with Wellstar Health System at Kennestone Hospital this fall, where I will be working with the Care Coordination Department on the trauma and medical surgery inpatient units. This internship will immerse me in the field of medical social work and equip me with the knowledge and skills necessary to help patients manage the psychosocial effects of chronic illness.
The Clendenin Scholars Program has given me the opportunity to conduct research on the effects of media on survivors of Islamic State (ISIS) captivity. This research recently required me to travel to Iraqi-Kurdistan and conduct in-person interviews with survivors of captivity, Yezidi community members and religious leaders, journalists and humanitarian aid workers. The findings of the research will allow the field of International Conflict Management to better interact with journalists and humanitarian aid organizations to provide assistance to survivors of sexual trauma and trafficking, while protecting their privacy and avoiding retraumatization of victims
