ECP Student Spotlight 

I have been so fortunate to serve as a Student Representative on the Executive Committee of Division 50 for the past two years. In this role, I developed an initiative to improve the way that we disseminate addiction-related content, especially content developed by students and ECPs. During this time, our Division has hosted five virtual poster sessions (3 at CPA and 2 at APA) on Twitter, including our most recent #CPA2020 virtual conference. At this virtual conference, we tweeted 64 posters, 1 panel, and earned 80,900 Twitter impressions – which is more than last year’s in-person CPA conference. I am so appreciative and grateful for the support of members in the Division, and the Technology & Communications Committee. Serving as a Student Representative has been such a great experience for me, and I highly encourage other students to become involved.
