When Home is the Only Environment: Health Outcomes for Emerging Adults after COVID-19 Lockdown

By nyx crushong


I am a senior psychology major, expecting to graduate in May 2022. I began my education in psychology as an adult student at 27 years old and earned my A.S. in Psychology from HACC. I came to Millersville after becoming a member of the 2019 All-PA Academic Team and earned PASSHE transfer scholarship. The research on which I will be presenting explores the perceptions students have of their relationships with their parents, and which physical and mental health conditions they currently experience. After graduation, I plan to continue my path toward research in Social Psychology by finding employment in a research lab and pursuing a doctoral degree in the field.
