Katrina Fuller wins Emerging Scholar Award for Senior Thesis chapter
This project spurred my interest in how people (in this paper, morgue workers) balance caring for themselves and others in times of crisis or endless need (as they did when faced with mass death at the onset of COVID). I currently work at the COVID-19 Mother Baby Outcomes (COMBO) Initiative where I research the pandemic’s effects on mother-infant relational health and infant development. I aspire to be a clinical psychologist who focuses on primary relationships, including those parental or romantic in nature or any others involving caregiving central to survival.
The award was given to me by the Dying and Bereavement special interest group of the Society for Medical Anthropology, a section within the AAA.
