Now more than ever, medical school students and faculty are faced with daunting challenges that directly impact learning and teaching experiences.

Dr. Cirecie West-Olatunji is Associate Professor of Counseling and Director of the Center for Traumatic Stress Research at Xavier University of Louisiana, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal for Multicultural Counseling and Development, and a Past President of the American Counseling Association.
