Congratulations to all the students and faculty who helped make National Depression Screening Day a huge success. A total of 145 screenings were completed! That may be an all time high!

Thank you especially to all the first and second years and to our Meltzer staff: Amrisha, Alexis and Adri. And, thank you to our baker, Andrew Gepty!

A great showing for our clinic and a great service to the community!


Dr. Emily "Emy" Hotez, a 2011 GW Psych alum (Ph.D., Developmental Psychology CUNY) , has moved to the West Coast to begin a new position as Project Scientist at the UCLA Center for Healthier Children, Families, and Communities. She will be conducting research for the Maternal and Child Health Life Course Intervention Research Network-- a national platform of interdisciplinary research focused on designing, planning, and implementing interventions for children and families across the lifespan. This work is funded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau. Congratulations, Emy!

Not only are our alums smart, they are also stylish. Anibel Ng-Conwell (Psych B.A. '11) was recently named by Washingtonian Magazine as one of the 9 Best-Dressed People in Washington!


Anibel Ng-Conwell studied psychology and fine arts at George Washington University. But out of the classroom, jewelry-making spoke to her. For her brand, Egolord, she designs lightweight statement jewelry: “With pieces I loved wearing, I’d remove them mid-evening because they’re heavy. I decided to make big pieces without compromising comfort.”

Her neighborhood: Reston.

What she’s wearing: “The dress is from Zara; the mock turtleneck is vintage. I could dress it up with higher heels and a leather jacket or dress it down with sneakers and tights. It’s comfortable and edgy at the same time.”
