2014-08-01_Post Photo_Kelsey and Jacob JonesKelsey Thomas, MS,  and Jacob Jones, M.S., receive competitive scholarships from UC-Davis and U. Washington, to attend the 2014 NIH-funded Friday Harbor workshop on Advanced Psychometric Methods in Cognitive Aging. This 5 day “hands on” workshop encourages  manuscript development  among leaders in the field and early stage investigators via use of large scale longitudinal data sets from  cognitive aging samples (i.e., Seattle Longitudinal Project, ACTIVE, etc.).   Kelsey and Jacob were the only graduate student participants in this year’s highly select workshop.  Both are doctoral students in the neuropsychology track, mentored by Drs. Dawn Bowers (Jones) and Michael Marsiske (Thomas).
