"The I am Psyched! National Tour was launched with remarks from APA President-elect Jessica Henderson Daniel, PhD, ABPP, for a three-day installation at Howard University (HU) in Washington, D.C. The event celebrated both APA's 125th anniversary and HU's 150th anniversary. The tour will continue around the country, featuring women psychologists and discussions on how they have used psychology to make positive social change. I Am Psyched! originated as part of the Smithsonian Institution's Museum Day Live! in 2016. The APA Women's Programs Office created a pop-up exhibit to engage young women of color in the museum experience and show how psychology benefits daily life."
Dr. Shari Miles-Cohen, the Senior Director of the APA Women’s Programs Office, Public Interest Directorate, also joined us at RMPA 2018 and 2019.
