“Seeing the Lion: From Epidemiology to Digital Health in Search of Transformative Change in Early Childhood Mental Health”

Abstract: In this lecture, Dr. Egger will review her work in the science and practice of early childhood mental health during each of the decades of her thirty year career. From jokes early in her career that early childhood mental health involved “putting babies on couches” to advances in the nosology and methods for multi-modal assessment to application of machine learning and computer vision analytics to longitudinal data and video data to the decision to leave academia to co-found a venture-backed digital health start-up–Dr. Egger will bring this journey to the present where she will highlight current opportunities to continue to advance early childhood developmental psychopathology and to translate science into tools and care models that can scale and meet the needs of young children and their families.
