Sam is a doctoral student studying clinical psychology at Eastern Michigan University (EMU). Prior to starting the doctoral program, Sam earned her master’s in clinical behavioral psychology at EMU and obtained her limited license in psychology (LLP). Broadly, she is interested in the behavior analysis of functional changes associated with late-life cognitive loss and evaluating the current practice standards for the treatment and assessment of this population. Currently, her primary research projects include the development of an intervention to improve lay persons’ knowledge of medical decision-making capacity, a behavioral economics project assessing the reinforcing properties of drugs, community outreach and program evaluation studies aimed to improve local support services for older adults, and the development of a functional assessment protocol to assess individuals with cognitive loss via telehealth.
