- Biography: Dr. Adam Kinney is an occupational therapist who completed his Ph.D. in the Department of Occupational Therapy at Colorado State University in 2019. While pursuing his Ph.D. he collaborated with New Start for Student Veterans, a supported education program for student Veterans, to investigate factors influencing a range of clinical outcomes, including resilience, community reintegration, and academic performance.
