Psychology Day at the Capitol

IPA's second Get Psyched for Advocacy:  Psychology Day at the Capitol was February 24.  Members served breakfast and casually chatted with legislators and staff about the proposed clarification to the licensure law, SB1305, for prescribing psychologists.   A HUGE THANKS to Drs. Lyn McArthur, Kendra Westerhaus, Page Haviland, Eric Silk for all of their help!  Thanks, too, to Kris Ellis and her team and Casey Westerhaus.
