Dr. Inscore was awarded a doctoral degree in clinical psychology from Loyola University in Maryland, and completed one year of research and two years of clinical postdoctoral training in neuropsychology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine (Departments of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, respectively). She has worked in the capacity of a clinical neuropsychologist at the Baltimore VA Medical Center since December 2007, and has served as the Director of Training for the VA’s postdoctoral residency program in clinical neuropsychology since February 2011. Dr. Inscore became board-certified in clinical neuropsychology in April 2013. She holds an appointment as a Research Associate at the University of Maryland, Department of Medicine. Dr. Inscore’s dissertation research investigated the relationship between coping and adherence to treatment regimen in patients with type 2 diabetes, and she has clinical research interests in the relationship between stress, weight loss, and neurocognitive function in patients with metabolic syndrome. She was the PI on pilot and feasibility grant entitled “Yoga to Improve Psychological and Neuroendocrine Function and Promote Weight Loss in Obesity.” Her research interests also include investigation of the relationship between medical, neuropsychological, and functional status in persons who are aging or those with dementia. Dr. Inscore was instrumental in developing neurocognitive test batteries to track outcomes in VA patients enrolling in the Diabetes-MOVE program, as well as in patient’s enrolling in a vitamin D supplementation study. Finally, Dr. Inscore has performed a number of clinical evaluations on patients with diabetes and other cerebrovascular risk factors in the course of her work as a clinical neuropsychologist at the Baltimore VAMC.
