Chief Product Officer Joe Gallagher, PhD, said:
“Trina is one of the few people in our industry who has consistently been at the forefront of digital behavioural health, and will bring unparalleled experience evaluating and implementing innovative solutions to our work.
“We are fortunate that a person with such an impressive track record will now help shape our approach to making behavioural health an integral and easily integrated part of the care practice and experience.”
Histon is the author of dozens of scientific papers focused on prevention and wellness, including a recent case study in the New England Journal of Medicine’s Catalyst.
He holds a doctorate degree in Health Psychology and a bachelor’s degree in Applied Psychology from University College Cork, Ireland.
“In my previous roles, I’ve assessed many digital behavioral health solutions.
“Woebot always stood out for its clinical focus and its ability to build trust and deliver the right tool for the moment, so that people can take that next step to feeling better.
“I’m thrilled to join this talented team and to share the goal to reduce the burden of suffering for people who are living with anxiety and depression.”
