About Dr. Aiken Morgan

Adrienne Aiken Morgan, PhD

Welcome to my website! As a clinical geropsychologist, my work and research interests lie at the intersection of four broad areas of inquiry: sociocultural experience (e.g., race & ethnicity, education); cognition; aging; and health and health disparities.

Currently, I am an assistant professor of clinical psychology in the Department of Psychology at North Carolina A&T State University. I hold an appointment as a visiting research fellow in the Center on Health and Society at the Social Science Research Institute at Duke University. I also am a senior fellow in the Duke University Center for the Study of Aging and Human Development.

I recently received a NIA Diversity Supplement Award (#3RF1AG022018-11S2) to study Longitudinal Relationships between Adiposity and Cognition in Black Older Adults (Award Dates: 9/2019-3/2021).
