Two current Roslyn High School seniors Arshia Aalami and Alain Sherman, and two members of the class of 2012 Benjamin Kornick and Daniel Sikavi were selected to present the psychology research they did at Roslyn High School at this year’s Eastern Psychological Association (EPA) meeting. EPA, founded in 1896, aims to advance psychology through the dissemination of the field’s latest scholarship. This year’s meeting was held at the Marriott Marquis in New York City.
The work presented by each young man represents the culmination of his research efforts during his tenure at Roslyn High School. Arshia’s project involved two experiments dealing with gender bias against women who self-promote. Alain’s experiments dealt with differences in laypeople and health care professionals’ ideas about what to look for in a primary care physician. Ben’s study focused on the relationship between parenting behaviors and children’s involvement in risky behaviors. Daniel’s work looked at the role of trust and other psychosocial variables in breast cancer patients’ perceptions of their care.

The mourning period after the death of a loved one can be a difficult period for any family. Roslyn resident Elissa Zodipoff, along with her business partner, Old Westbury resident Gayle Gelbard, are offering a new service, Shiva On Call, to help families of the Jewish faith deal with such sad situations.
The business, Zodipoff said, has been in existence for eight months now. It is being run out of her home in Roslyn, but Zodipoff hopes to expand it to a business center somewhere in the Garden City or Mineola area.
