Dr. Mark Daddona, an associate professor of psychology, will be deployed to South Georgia or Florida to support relief efforts for recent hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
Dr. Daddona is a Disaster Mental Health Supervisor with the American Red Cross and the Mental Health Co-Leader for the Metropolitan Atlanta Area. In this capacity, he has been called upon to serve people displaced by Hurricane Harvey to provide mental health services to victims and other responders.
He started volunteering with the Red Cross 12 years ago when he was deployed to the gulf region after Hurricane Katrina.
So that students do not fall behind in their class during his absence, Dr. Daddona plans to record all of his lectures, and faculty will work with his students during this time.
The Laker family wishes Dr. Daddona safe travels and return.
