“I’m excited to work with the Jasper Health team to help improve the psychological wellbeing of cancer patients,” said Dr. Temple, a Professor of Clinical Psychiatry at the University of Iowa. “I’ve been impressed by the talent and healthcare expertise present on the Jasper team and their passionate focus on the patient. The healthcare system is desperate for innovation around new forms of service delivery, and Jasper Health is using technology to extend care far beyond the consulting room. As a clinical psychologist, I am delighted that they are improving access to psychological support at a time when many are otherwise unable to access such care.”
