This Enrichment Series webinar co-hosted by the Center of Translational Research and the Health Disparities special interest group, will feature Delishia M. Pittman, Ph.D., as our guest lecturer.

Delishia M. Pittman, Ph.D., is a tenured associate professor of Counseling in the Graduate School of Education and Human Development at The George Washington University and the director of the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program where she oversees the training of nearly 100 graduate counselor trainees a year. She is an award-winning board-certified counseling psychologist. Dr. Pittman is the first African American to be board-certified in counseling psychology in the District of Columbia.

Dr. Pittman is trained as a behavioral scientist and has built a successful career as a health disparities researcher. Her research centers on racial and ethnic disparities in health behaviors and outcomes in African Americans. More pointedly, her work examines Black communities in context — exploring the contributions of race, culture, environment and diverse lived experiences on health behavior and health outcomes in Black emerging adults.

Dr. Pittman is passionate about training culturally responsive mental health practitioners and researchers, equipped to serve the needs of a diverse and diversifying nation.
