Psychologists took to the streets of Gainesville on April 22, 2017. 

As Rus Bauer, our Director of Clinical Training, said to the department: “The CHP attendance was truly impressive.  Special thanks to our Dean, Mike Perri, for marching with us!!  I am hopeful that this and other Marches will make an impression on the decision makers.  Psychological science is very important in today’s healthcare environment since so many of our key health problems have important behavioral components.  Psychological science is key!  We put the ‘PSY’ in ‘Psyence’. Thanks to everyone for coming out today!  We represented our field very well.   Go Gators!!”
