Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility

2022- As co-chair of the PTSD Special Interest Group (SIG) of the Anxiety Disorders Association of America (ADAA), I work closely with one of its Donor Funded BIPOC Membership Scholars to provide curated, semi-annual article lists to our SIG which highlight new articles relevant to trauma and PTSD. Each compilation includes a section highlighting recently published articles focused on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

2020- Leading ongoing series of discussions in biweekly assessment core reliability meetings on issues of diversity as it pertains to PTSD symptomatology.
