Parks, Carlson recognized for exceptional work in integrated primary care, interprofessionalism

May 9, 2019

The Primary Care Psychology Training Collaborative is proud to recognize the accomplishments of two of our primary care clinicians.

Amanda Parks, M.S., a doctoral student in the Child/Adolescent concentration, was just elected to be the student representative for the Integrated Primary Care Special Interest Group (SIG) of American Psychological Association's Division 54 (Society of Pediatric Psychology). The Integrated Primary Care SIG is focused on the development and improvement of integrated primary care programs across the country. Serving as student representative for this national group is an excellent way to provide service to our profession. Congratulations Amanda!
