MSU Sophomore Receives Top Honors During Summer Internship at UCLA

Morgan sophomore India Harper, a psychology major in Morgan’s College of Liberal Arts, completed a National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) eight-week internship at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) this summer, in the Department of Family Medicine. As a component of her internship and under the mentorship of Steven Shoptaw, Ph.D., a licensed psychologist and UCLA professor, Harper delivered a persuasive research project on the topic, “Cost Effectiveness of Injectable Naltrexone for Treating Alcohol Use Disorder” and received the honor for “Top Student Trainee Oral Presentation.”

As a recipient of this honor, she also was selected to present her research at Charles Drew University’s Diversity-promoting Institutions Drug Abuse Research Development Program (DIDARP) Conference, where former U.S. Surgeon General David Satcher, M.D., Ph.D. was the keynote speaker. At the conference, Harper was the only featured undergraduate student/junior presenter to make an oral presentation before the attendees.

Congratulations to India Harper for a job well done and for being a great representative of this university!
