Eunice Yuen, MD, PhD, assistant professor of psychiatry, has been selected to participate in the 2022-23 Women Faculty Forum Public Voices Fellowship at Yale.
The program gives under-represented minority scholars the opportunity to work with top journalists from The OpEd Project. Fellows receive support in all areas of public thought leadership, including writing and placing op-ed pieces, conducting TV and radio interviews, and using social media.
The fellowship is designed to assist scholars in increasing their influence as thought leaders whose ideas impact not only academia but also larger public debates.
The OpEd Project works with universities and other organizations to train under-represented experts to take thought leadership positions in their fields through op-eds and other means.
Before joining the Yale School of Medicine faculty, Yuen completed the Albert J. Solnit Integrated Training Program in Adult, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Research at the Yale Department of Psychiatry and Yale Child Study Center. Her neuroscience PhD research focused on cellular and molecular mechanisms of emotional stress in the brain and how emotional stress affects mental health.
Yuen is also founder and director of Yale Compassionate Home, Action Together (CHATogether), a culturally- and family-oriented program using drama vignettes as educational tools to promote emotional wellness in Asian-American children, young adults, and parents.
