Judy E. Hall Early Career Psychologist
This award, named in honor of the National Register’s Executive Officer from 1990 through 2013, is presented annually to a National Register credentialed psychologist with fewer than 10 years of postdoctoral experience. Successful research projects will outline a strategy aimed at enhancing the contributions of psychology to health care. Such proposals may examine the effectiveness of newly devised interventions in specific populations or they may evaluate the outcome of specific interventions in various populations or patient groups. Implementation projects may examine broad topical areas such as the effectiveness of psychological interventions as a factor in enhancing population health or the cost-efficacy of utilizing health service psychologists as standalone providers or members of an interdisciplinary team. Studies examining the efficacy of psychological interventions to mitigate the effects of adverse childhood experiences or negative social determinants of health would also qualify. Non-applied studies or proposals for funding to enhance an individual or group practice are not eligible.
