• Psychology professor Kim Ujcich Ward, who discusses her research into how perceptions of body image, positive and negative, begin in childhood.
• Social work professors Nikki Jones and Vickie Harden, who explain how sleep deprivation affects children’s development, particularly in children of color.
• Speech and language professors Rebecca Fischer and Kathryn Blankenship, who discuss the history, growth and service, both to students and to the surrounding community, of the university’s Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology Program.
