Mr. Akinwolere received his Bachelor of Science degree in Behavioral Healthcare from the University of South Florida, and received his Master of Social Work degree from New York University. As part of his master’s program, he had a clinical internship at a psychiatric center working with people with severe and persistent mental illness, predominantly with psychotic disorders.

Mr. Akinwolere joined FRI as a Research Assistant to work with Dr. Mary Mitchell on a NIDA Clinical Trials Network study, which is part of the NIH HEAL Initiative to address the opioid epidemic. Mr. Akinwolere has a strong interest in behavioral health research broadly and he is excited to be a part of a research team that is actively investigating strategies to help individuals with behavioral health needs.
