The Elina Manghi Memorial
The 2014 Elina Manghi Memorial Lecture and Scholarship Reception
Thank you to everyone who attended the 2014 Annual Elina Manghi Memorial Child and Adolescent Psychology Lecture on October 23 at the Adler University Chicago Campus. We welcomed alumni, students, faculty, and friends to gather in honor of Elina Manghi and the two students receiving scholarships in her name this year.
Adler University was pleased to welcome distinguished researcher Sydney Hans, Ph.D., Samuel Deutsch Professor at the University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration, who spoke on the Chicago Doula Project. In 2000, she established the project for community doulas to work with expecting mothers and their families. Today, it is nationally recognized for its powerful impact supporting healthy families and preventing child maltreatment.
Dennis McGuire, Elina’s widowed husband, attended for the third year to present this year’s distinguished Elina Manghi Scholarships to two of Adler’s Psy.D. students: Amanda McCune and Sasha Hileman. Both are pursuing their Psy.D. degree with a focus on underserved child and adolescent populations, and will utilize this scholarship to further their studies in this area.
The Elina Manghi Memorial
The Memorial was established at Adler University to honor the memory of Elina Manghi, Ph.D., a cherished colleague, and a consummate child and adolescent psychologist. Dr. Manghi was an exemplary clinician, researcher and teacher, whose compassion and generosity deeply touched everyone with whom she worked. The Elina Manghi Memorial Child and Adolescent Psychology Lecture features a leading figure in the field of child and adolescent psychology, whose work exemplifies the qualities and principles Elina espoused and taught.
Child and Adolescent Psychology Diversity Scholarship
Established in 2012, the Elina Manghi Child and Adolescent Psychology Diversity Scholarship is designated for students entering the Child and Adolescent Psychology track within the Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) in Clinical Psychology program at Adler University. The Diversity Scholarship honors Dr. Manghi’s commitment to working with underserved populations and intended to encourage students to pursue work in the field to which Dr. Manghi dedicated her life. The fund annually will provide a $1,000 scholarship to one student working with an under-represented ethnic group. The scholarship was established through the generosity of David Katz, Ph.D., ABPP, Program Chair, Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology Program, and Core Faculty member at Adler University.
Contributions for both the Diversity Scholarship are welcomed and accepted through the Office for Institutional Advancement. Contributions can be made online or by mail:
