Professor of Psychology Patricia Rutledge presented a paper in November at the annual meeting of the American Public Health Association (APHA) in Boston. The paper, “Development of comprehensive measures of alcohol-policy enforcement,” was co-authored with Rhonda Jones-Webb, Toben Nelson, Traci Toomey, and Darin Erikson, all of the University of Minnesota. Rutledge was a co-author on another APHA presentation made by first author Julie Sanem: “Association between impaired driving law enforcement efforts and drinking and driving behavior.” The work presented at APHA was initiated during Rutledge’s 2012-2013 sabbatical in the Division of Epidemiology and Community Health, School of Public Health, University of Minnesota, where she was a visiting associate professor. This work is supported by a grant from the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) R01 AA017873 to Darin J. Erickson, Principal Investigator. Support for Rutledge’s sabbatical was provided by the Great Lakes Colleges Association as part of its New Directions Initiative, which was made possible by a grant from The Andrew W.

Assistant Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience Sarah Conklin recently had two papers accepted for publication.
With her collaborators at the University of Pittsburgh Medical School and Graduate School of Public Health, she co-authored “Concurrent Physical Activity Modifies the Association Between Omega-3 Long-Chain Fatty Acids and Cardiometabolic Risk,” which reported that habitual physical activity may be necessary to unmask the salutary effects of omega 3 fatty acids on cardiometabolic risk and insulin resistance. It was accepted for publication in the Journal of Nutrition.
“Is the Association Between Depression and Blunted Cardiovascular Stress Reactions Mediated by Perceptions of Stress?” was accepted for publication by the International Journal of Psychophysiology. The paper reports data collected as part of the senior comprehensive project conducted at Allegheny by Ryan Brindle ’12, who is currently a doctoral student in the UK. Dr. Annie Ginty ’08 was also a co-author on the paper. The findings show that symptoms of depression are associated with reduced cardiovascular responses to a mental stressor and that the cardiovascular reactions may be task specific and mediated by perceptions of stress.
