Gadsden State Community College STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) students Chelsea Boyd (Heflin), Michael Buckley (Auburn), Roderick Ford (Collinsville), and Natashia Horton (Alexandria) were chosen to attend a conference recently held in Houston, Texas, designed to promote “Understanding Behavioral Health in a Changing World.” The conference was held at the Dr. Lonnie E. Mitchell HBCU Behavioral Health Policy Academy, which is funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
The opportunity to attend the conference was made possible due to a mini-grant from the Historically Black Colleges and Universities-Center for Excellence in Behavior Health. Gadsden State is a sub-awardee through Morehouse School of Medicine, located in Atlanta, Ga. Gadsden State was selected by Morehouse as one of twenty colleges invited to send four representatives to the conference.
