Katherine Deegan

Katherine graduated from Vanderbilt University in 2021 with a Bachelor of Science in Cognitive Studies and African-American/African Diaspora Studies, where she facilitated research in the Social Emotional Neuroscience Endocrinology and Stress and Coping Labs. On the MAPS MDMA/PTSD Study, Katherine enters data, facilitates participant scheduling, and takes measures during participant visits. Katherine hopes to dedicate her career to helping individuals get to the root of their trauma in order to find healing, and to make such therapeutic practices readily accessible to marginalized groups that have experienced the unique trauma of discrimination.
