>>NARRATOR: Can one person change the world?
It’s not only logical. It’s psychological. It took a psychologist to show that segregation
damaged self-esteem in black children, testimony to the Supreme Court that helped desegregate
America’s public schools. That the right design of a push-button keypad makes
dialing fast and accurate. That massage therapy on preemies can save $3,000 per hospital stay.
That no two people have the same fingerprints. That teaching people to
change behaviors can prevent teen pregnancy and HIV. That a lime yellow fire truck is
safer than a red one. And now it takes you to keep changing the
world, one person at a time, one conversation at a time, one message at a time. When you
share what you know on Capitol Hill, you keep scientific research alive. You improve
public health. Physical health. Mental health. Your expertise moves the process forward.
Stop talking, and we all lose. So do it for you. Them. Us. And all of us. Because
when psychologists effect change, they affect America.
