“I was shocked and humbled when I heard about this honor,” Neal-Barnett said. “Judge Stubbs was such a man of honor and integrity. The point of everything we do is to try and make a difference in the emotional well-being of African Americans, and to be recognized for the work is truly incredible.”

Neal-Barnett earned her bachelor’s from Mount Union College in Alliance, Ohio, and both her Master’s and doctoral degrees from DePaul University in Chicago. She completed a prestigious postdoctoral fellowship in clinical research at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic.
