UNT student Elizabeth Burgin wins Tillman scholarship to study military health care

Elizabeth BurginElizabeth Burgin, a doctoral student in the counseling program in UNT's College of Education, was named a 2017 Tillman Scholar. She will use the scholarship to continue her research efforts, developing counselor-specific competencies for military health care and military-focused adaptations to evidence-based treatments, with a focus on play therapy.

Burgin says she is inspired by the Army communities she and her husband, Army Capt. Russ Burgin -- now an ROTC instructor at UNT after several deployments in Afghanistan -- have called home.

"I want to be an advocate for wellness and mental health for service members and their families," she says.
