Dr. Rahill has two journal articles published
Dr. Guitele Rahill, Social Work, recently published two articles in the Journal of Social Work Practice in the Addictions, Vol. 9, Issue 3. Her article, "What is Relapse? Dr. Guitele RahillA Contemporary Exploration of Treatment of Alcoholism," was co-authored with Dr. Elsa Pinto Lopez, University of Puerto Rico, Anna Vanderbiest, social worker, and Dr. Christopher Rice, Florida International University. The article's premise is that notstandardized definitions for treatment outcomes (coupled with treatment from multiple service providers), can obscure treatment success. The article further indicates that standardizing treatment success might require inclusions of multiple domains of life function in defining relapse. Dr. Rahill also wrote, in the same issue of the journal, "The Practice and Use of Lay Injectionists among Marginalized Immigrants in the United States: A Call for Research." This article was also co-authored with Dr. Elsa Pinto Lopez.

Dr. Mello presents peer-reviewed paper
Dr. John Mello, Marketing, recently presented a peer-reviewed paper, co-authored with Dr. Wesley Randall of Auburn University, at the Council of Supply Chain Management Educators' Conference in San Diego, Calif.

The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) is the world's leading source for the supply chain profession, and its mission is t
o lead the evolving supply chain management profession by developing, advancing, and disseminating supply chain knowledge and research.

ASU alumna Dr. Sherry Laymon to sign 'Pfeiffer Country'
ASU alumna Dr. Sherry Laymon, Heritage Studies, will sign copies of her book, "Pfeiffer CDr. Sherry Laymonountry," on Thursday, Oct. 15, at 4 p.m. on the third floor of the Dean B. Ellis Library.. Dr. Laymon’s appearance is sponsored by the Heritage Studies PhD program. Admission is free, and the public is invited. Laymon’s “Pfeiffer Country” was published by the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies and distributed by the University of Arkansas Press.
Sherry Laymon, an independent scholar and author, earned her doctoral degree in Heritage Studies in 2005. Laymon wrote her doctoral dissertation on Pfeiffer’s farming model and was encouraged to convert it into a book because Pfeiffer’s farming model contrasted significantly from the prominent sharecropping and tenant farming operations in the South. For details, see the NewsPage release.
