More students have been accepted into advanced degree programs for mental health therapy at East Carolina University now that a donated building has been remodeled for research.
The 2,800-square-foot building was bequeathed to the university by the late Nina Belle Redditt, a Kinston native. The remodeled building at 612 E. 10th St. was put into use in mid-2011. A ribbon-cutting ceremony took place last month.
The Redditt House spurred the creation of a new research facility, the Medical Family Therapy Research Academy, director Angela Lamson, who also serves as an associate professor, said. Students in the master’s program for Marriage and Family Therapy and the doctorate program for Medical Family Therapy are involved in research. Both programs are under the Department of Child Development and Family Relations in the College of Human Ecology.
