Tiffiny Hughes-Troutman, Ph.D., psychologist and coordinator of outreach and professional development for the Counseling Center, recently delivered a presentation on "Transitioning to College" for the Georgia Psychological Association's (GPA) 2013 Mind/Body Health Fair at Norcross High School. Tiffiny spoke to a diverse crowd of students and families, addressing the unique concerns of student veterans, students of color, first-generation college students, students with disabilities, and other underrepresented college student populations. The Mind/Body Health Fair was open and free to the general public and brought psychological information and resources to those who may be hesitant to seek help.
