A Message From the President
With the passage of the Health Care Reform Act (PPACA), there will be 42 million more people covered by health insurance which will include mental health benefits. This will be crucial to addressing the need for psychologists who understand the link between physical and mental well-being.
Dr. Jessica Luzier was nominated as an outstanding leader because of her advocacy work in the Ohio Psychological Association (OPA). As a graduate student, Dr. Luzier was the leading advocate in Ohio during the successful campaign to change the sequence of training statute. She was drawn to the legislative effort after the change in APA policy regarding the minimum educational requirement for entry into professional practice.
