New faculty join the Doctor of Behavioral Health Program

The DBH Program is thrilled to announce the addition of two new full-time clinical associate professors to our core faculty, Drs. Christine Borst and Matt Martin. Some of you may already be familiar with Dr. Borst, as she has served as a faculty associate with us for the past year. Both Drs. Borst and Martin will be joining the team effective July 31, 2017, and we look forward to having them on board!
