The Professional Education Committee promotes the investigation and implementation of empirically supported treatments and best practices across disciplines and career levels through the development of a cohesive ADAA professional education program for multi-multidisciplinary professionals. The Professional Education Committee (PrEC) is charged with oversight of all ADAA professional education offerings including ADAA webinars. The Committee also oversees the Clinical Fellows program which offers participants an exclusive learning opportunity to further their clinical training in anxiety, depression, and related disorders by participating in ADAA’s continuing education opportunities with the goal of providing quality patient care. Members and nonmembers are encouraged to submit webinar proposals. For more information contact ADAA's Senior Manager, Program Education Susan Bailey
