Who are we?

The Education and Advocacy Committee

This committee is a grassroots movement started by graduate students, interns, post docs, faculty, and staff within the Department of Clinical and Health Psychology. In society, psychologists are given a unique position to be leaders in the community, in medicine, and in the political sphere.
