Join us as we welcome Dr. Tiffany Townsend, Senior Director of the Office of Ethnic Minority Affairs (OEMA) for the American Psychological Association, to OPA’s Annual Convention, “The Strength to Lead, Connect and Heal,” being held on April 26-28 at the Quest Conference Center in Columbus.

Dr. Townsend will be presenting our keynote address “Psychologists’ Role in Addressing Health Disparities” beginning at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, April 26. Later that day, she will also be attending our Diversity and Newly Licensed Reception from 5 – 6 p.m.

Tiffany G. Townsend, PhD is the Senior Director of the Office of Ethnic Minority Affairs (OEMA) for the American Psychological Association (APA). She received her doctorate in clinical psychology from George Washington University. In her capacity as director of OEMA, Dr. Townsend directs two professional mentoring programs; the Cyber Mentors Program funded by NIMH, and the Promoting Psychological Research and Training on Health Disparities Issues at Ethnic Minority Serving Institutions (ProDIGs) program funded by the APA Science Directorate’s Academic Enhancement Initiative. These programs represent the cornerstones of OEMA’s goal to increase the number of scholars of color contributing to psychological science and to train psychologists of all races to adequately address our nation’s burgeoning health disparities.
