Welch Center core faculty member Felicia Hill-Briggs, PhD, and Welch Center trainee Andrea Christman have been informed that an article by them has received the Nelson Butters Award from the National Academy of Neuropsychology. The Nelson Butters award is granted for the best research paper published in the Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology during the preceding year. The article, titled "Cranial volume, mild cognitive deficits, and functional limitations associated with diabetes in a community sample," appeared in the February 2010 issue of the journal, which is sponsored by the Academy.
Ms. Christman is the article's first-named author. In addition to Dr. Hill-Briggs, coauthors include colleagues from the Department of Psychiatry. The award will be presented at the National Academy of Neuropsychology annual meeting in Marco Island, Florida in November.
