Dr. Chapman and ADAA
"I joined ADAA in 2008 and became involved in 2010 when I discovered that ADAA is a natural outlet for my research. I soon realized after joining ADAA that a number of my colleagues not only attend ADAA's annual conference but are also actively involved in the organization's governance. I enjoy my ADAA membership for several, interrelated reasons. ADAA has increasingly valued diversity and makes issues pertaining to diversity salient throughout all facets of its educational programming. Additionally, I thoroughly enjoy my time at ADAA conferences where I can not only spend time catching up with colleagues, but also attend an exceptionally diverse program pertaining to anxiety and related concerns. Presenting at ADAA is always extremely enjoyable and the increased emphasis on technology and social media is absolutely refreshing! Additionally, ADAA is truly innovative in leveraging the intersection between consumers and mental health providers. By engaging constituents through monthly Twitter Chats (one of my favorite components), webinars, and blog posts, ADAA truly facilitates dissemination and public education."
