HELP EXPAND THE PRESENCE OF WACP THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA
We are starting a campaign to expand our global reach through social media. Our goal is to facilitate the interaction of our members and friends by identifying common interests and expanding access to cultural psychiatry activities and resources.
Our trainee and student section, led by William Affleck with support of Shabana Jamani, will lead a social media effort with three goals:
expand student and young professional interest and engagement with WACP;
provide young professionals the opportunity to network, and share their own research / work in cultural psychiatry
increase collaborations between WACP and student young professionals
We encourage you to participate by referencing our social media channels in your professional postings. This will allow us to further disseminate your activities and expand the WACP network.
Linkedin: please connect with Dr. William Affleck, president of the Trainee Section of the WACP. His profile can be found at: https://www.linkedin.com/in/william-affleck-aa313b1b7/.

Please disseminate the availability of these social media platforms among your colleagues, students and trainees. We hope to see an expanded engagement on cultural psychiatry as we prepare for our 2022 World Congress.
