Dr. Susan Regas, core faculty member in Alliant’s California School of Professional Psychology (CSPP) in Los Angeles, was awarded $141,000 from The Rose Hills Foundation to increase current efforts at the Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House. The grant will also allow for expanded family support services at the Pasadena Ronald McDonald House and to weekend camps at Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times.

In December 2011, The Rose Hills Foundation awarded Dr. Regas a grant to develop the Family/Child and Couple Clinical Psychology internship program at the Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House (LARMH). The program provides stipends for interns as well as support services and resources for families living at the LARMH while their critically or terminally ill child is receiving advanced medical treatment.

These additional funds will allow Dr. Regas to expand her partnerships with the Los Angeles and Pasadena Ronald McDonald Houses, as well as provide additional internship placements and support services to families and their children.

Kudos to Dr. Regas for her sustained and successful efforts with this important work that integrates clinical psychology in nontraditional community settings that serve underserved children and families!
