More than 120 volunteer research assistants have contributed to SPAN over the years!

Our research program would not be possible without the support that we have received from the amazing undergraduate students at WU who have served as voluntary research assistants for our study.  Their dedication, energy, and resilience have sustained us through many busy years. We remain extremely grateful for their help.  Most of our former research assistants have gone on to pursue professional careers in exciting fields, ranging from psychology, social work, and education to medicine, business, and the law.  Several have received (or are working on) doctoral degrees in clinical psychology and are now publishing their own research.  Below we list their names and provide hot links to descriptions of their many accomplishments (whenever we could find them).  Congratulations to all of you!
