J. Konadu Fokuo
J. Konadu Fokuo received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Carleton College and is currently a clinical graduate student at the Illinois Institute of Technology. As an undergraduate Mellon Mays Scholar and Ronald McNair Scholar, Konadu’s interest in stigma led her to conduct research on perceptions of beauty among Ghanaian women in Ghana; focusing on skin tone (lightness and darkness) and marriage marketability in this population. After her undergraduate education, Konadu worked on a Chicago based NIMH study that investigated barriers to mental health services utilization for people suffering from symptoms of depression.
Currently as a member of Dr. Pat Corrigan’s lab, Konadu is assisting his work as a consultant on a social inclusion anti-stigma campaign with a consumer run, non-profit organization in California. She is aiding in the investigation of the campaign’s social impact and penetration.
