Psi Chi Distinguished Lecturer
From R1 to Liberal Arts College to Industry: One Psychologist's Journey to Digital Therapeutics

Time and Room TBD
Speaker: Acacia Parks (Happify, Inc.)
Abstract: Dr. Parks’s journey started with an undergraduate thesis on the impact self-help books on mental health. Over the years, self-help books became new web-based interventions, then a gamified well-being app (Happify), and finally a FDA-regulated digital therapeutics platform (Happify Health). This talk describes her journey from undergraduate at a small liberal arts college to graduate school at an R1 university, back to a small liberal arts college where she earned tenure, and, ultimately, to a lead research role in industry.
