Profile Information

about me
Since 1986, I have been a faculty member in the Psychology Department at SUNY Old Westbury since 1986. My scholarly work focuses on bringing race and culture to the center of the psychology curriculum, the challenges of teaching about race, and on survival guilt in African American college students.

She has been active in the Association of Black Psychologists for almost 40 years, serving five terms as President of the New York chapter. She is currently co-chair of the national Ethics Committee. In 2009, I was honored by the organization with the Distinguished Psychologist Award for her scholarship, and her service, which focused on engaging and empowering student members.

I have consulted with numerous colleges and medical schools on the role of culture in health care, teaching about diversity, and enhancing the success of medical students who are students of color.
