As we enter fall of 2020, we are delighted to announce the successful nominations of Dr. Heather O’Brien, Dr. Mollie M. Pleet, and Dr. Josh Woolley as CREST.BD network members. There was resounding support for all three nominations.

Dr. O’Brien is currently involved in CREST.BD’s flagship Bipolar Bridges project, focusing on mHealth app engagement. Learn more about her work on their project on her latest Bipolar Blog:
