Congratulations to Dr. Angela Incollingo Rodriguez, who successfully defended her dissertation!

A few weeks ago, our wonderful grad student Angela (who was also the first DiSH Lab manager) officially became Dr. Angela Incollingo Rodriguez! She successfully defended her dissertation on weight stigma and health in pregnancy, earning her Ph.D.

Here’s what she had to say: “It was definitely a proud moment for me presenting the results of my dissertation that I’ve worked so hard on over the past year. I was also really grateful for the support and feedback from my awesome committee members – they gave me great ideas for how to disseminate my work to several different audiences. I cannot believe my time in the DiSH Lab is coming to an end, but I look forward to many exciting collaborations as I transition into the next phase of my career. Good luck to Laura and Jenna who are defending soon to complete the trifecta of DiSH Lab 2018 grads!”

This is a huge milestone in Dr. Incollingo Rodriguez’s career, and we are all incredibly proud to call her one of our own! She accepted a position as an Assistant Professor of Health Psychology at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and she will soon be moving to Massachusetts with her family. We wish her the best and can’t want to see what she does in the future!
