The CSPH report was one of several public-health-related actions taken by the House of Delegates on the last day of its Interim Meeting. Other subjects addressed were gun-safety counseling in undergraduate medical education, athlete concussion management and chronic traumatic encephalopathy prevention, promoting health awareness and preventive screenings for individuals with disabilities, and providing culturally competent mental health care for at-risk communities. Look for further coverage of these subjects in upcoming Psychiatric News issues.
New APA CEO and Medical Director Saul Levin, M.D., M.P.A., also took advantage of the occasion to meet with other specialty society leaders to plan strategy around common goals. To hear a brief audio conversation with Levin click here.
