Quinton Baker is a first generation college student. He was born in Spokane, Washington and has lived there his entire life. While growing up in a single parent home, he watched his mother make the decision to forego college in order to work and support him. Watching his mother work two jobs, while slowly climbing the economic ladder, reinforced the fact that if he wanted something in this world he would have to work to achieve it.
Quinton completed his first academic year at Eastern with a 3.53 GPA and made the Dean's List two out of three quarters. His major is Psychology, and he plans to attend graduate school to obtain a Ph.D. in Health Psychology and focus his career around alternative medicines. Outside of academia, Quinton is an active member of his community and will continue volunteering time and services for worthy causes. He has volunteered with groups and organizations such as Odyssey, Lincare, Goodwill, Red Cross, and Tapio Counseling Center, and looks forward to any public service opportunities in the future.

Bipolar II: Western Approach vs. Traditional Chinese Medicine Approach (2012)
Modern Western Medicine has been the standard of practice for treating diseases and disorders in the Americas, Europe, Australia and the Pacific Rim and its methodology is gaining predominance in most countries around the world. China has adopted the methods of Western Medicine and practices it concurrently with their historical Traditional Chinese Medicine approach. This paper evaluates the cultural differences in diagnostic features and the methods of both approaches for treating Bipolar II Disorder. There also is a brief discussion pertaining to the efficacy of both Western and Chinese medicines that highlight the issues surrounding the evaluation of TCM using Modern Western randomized clinical trials.
