It is my pleasure to introduce a new member of the UCB Training Center Los Angeles team: Shireen Oberman. Shireen will take on the newly created position of Director of Student Affairs. She will be an excellent resource for students who are looking for care and guidance in our community. Students should turn to Shireen for confidential support on mental health issues and difficult class situations. In addition to being a resource herself, Shireen has a great deal of experience in the Los Angeles clinical community and will be able to make referrals for students that require further care.
Shireen can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please join me in making Shireen feel welcome to our community!
