Congratulations to LAM Ching Yee and Wenqian ZHAO on being selected as the Student Spotlight Award winners for August and September 2023!

LAM Ching Yee is a Ph.D. student at the School of Nursing, Hong Kong Polytechnic University. LAM is examining the feasibility of an ACT-based intervention program for promoting psychological wellbeing in adolescent nursing students. LAM is the current Co-Chair of the ACBS Student SIG and and served as the Student Representative of the ABCS Board of Directors from 2020-2021. LAM was the recipient of the 2023 ACBS Michael J. Asher Student Dissertation Award.

Wenqian ZHAO is working on a Ph.D. at the The Chinese University of Hong Kong and is conducting a research project about the effectiveness of ACT-based intervention on breast cancer patients’ body image disturbance. ZHAO was the recipient of the 2022 ACBS Foundation Grant.

The purpose of this award is to highlight students who are doing important work in the CBS community whether for research, clinical, and/or volunteer-humanitarian efforts. This is a way to highlight their achievements, let the ACBS community know important work students are doing, and possibly provide a platform for mentoring, collaboration, professional development, and conversations around highlighted areas.
