Katrina Hamilton completed her Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology at Ohio University where she gained specialized training in health psychology and a secondary concentration in quantitative statistics. While completing her doctorate, she held a Heritage Fellowship through the Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine that fostered interdisciplinary training and research. This prior work was focused on acute and chronic stress, noninvasive interventions, lifestyle medicine, and working with chronically ill and healthy individuals. Specifically, her dissertation examined biopsychosocial outcomes of a 3-month lifestyle intervention relative to treatment as usual for individuals from Southeastern Ohio region of Appalachia who have a chronic pain condition.
