Student review
Deborah Oyeyemi was a very helpful mentor. Her substantial knowledge of the field of neuroscience and its real-world applications were very helpful for me while trying to create my podcast. She is very responsive and always willing to do anything that the student needs to ensure that they are able to publish a project that is reflective of their best work.

Project description

Audrey's podcast, Mind the Skin, is all about skin disorders and mental health. It's no secret that many teens struggle with skin conditions like acne, eczema, and excessive sweating. And unfortunately, some are difficult to treat, taking a toll on one’s mental health. Thus, as an aspiring global health professional, Audrey is extremely interested in the connection between the mind and the skin. In her podcast, she seeks to bring to light the relationship between neuroscience and dermatology to discover how certain mental conditions are linked to skin conditions.
