Grant Summary

Grant funds will provide partial funding for the continued growth of a postdoctoral training program in underserved areas of Iowa. When the trained psychologist continues to practice in Iowa, as has been the case for a high majority of the postdoctoral participants, the number of Iowans served continues to expand. While there is a benefit to Iowans and our collective mental health access during the one year of training, the accrued benefit when the psychologist continues to provide services into the future is the true benefit of this initiative. This is about as impactful as we can be in developing a future workforce within this critically needed discipline.
