Dr. June Kocsis

After several years as a stay-at-home mom, June Kocsis resumed her teaching career and earned a master’s degree in education from Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) in Cleveland, Ohio. Her interest in life sciences inspired her to earn her bachelor’s and master’s in nursing from CWRU’s Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing. She integrated this background with a career in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) division of the University Hospitals of Cleveland. She later specialized in psych nursing at the Visiting Nurse Association while teaching psych clinical at Cleveland State University. After she relocated to Florence, Kentucky from Moreland Hills, Ohio in 1995, Dr. Kocsis received her Ph.D. from Union Institute and University.

Her Ph.D. studies focused on homeless American men. Her special interest in helping the homeless through various volunteer programs continues. Currently, she is collaborating with an alumna of Union Institute and University in conducting a research study. They are studying adult attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in homeless men, based on Dr. Kocsis’s theory that adult ADHD is found more frequently in homeless male populations.
