The Department of Psychiatry recognizes the exemplary expertise of our distinguished faculty
We are very proud of Danielle R. Henderson, PhD, assistant professor of Clinical Psychiatry, and her research team as they embark on a new Racial Justice Research Study to explore the impact of discriminatory law enforcement exposure and childhood trauma on health and quality of life in Black adults.
Dr. Henderson is co-Principal Investigator of the study, which will examine how continued racial profiling and discrimination by law enforcement may affect the mental and physical health and quality of life of Blacks engaged at a primary care setting. The research team plans to enroll at least 50 adults and conduct interviews over a 10-month period.
The Department also salutes the dedication of John Delaney, MD, assistant professor of Clinical Psychiatry. Dr. Delaney juggles multiple roles within the Department, from treating patients to training the country’s next generation of mental healthcare providers.
Dr. Delaney is an integral part of the team that provides care to both adults and children at IU Health’s suburban clinics where he serves as associate medical director. He is also faculty for the Resident Clinic at IU Neuroscience Center, helping to train residents through the unique experiences of treating a diverse adult patient population.
We wish both Drs. Henderson and Delaney continued success!
