Title: Strong Division Turnout at the MGH Public and Community Psychiatry Symposium

The Division of Global Psychiatry was well represented at the 4th Annual Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Public and Community Psychiatry Symposium on March 30, 2016. Following a relevant and thought-provoking keynote presentation by Dr. Pamela Collins of NIMH about dimensions of sexuality in women with serious mental illness in New York, members of the MGH community came together to share and discuss their recent work related to community psychiatry. Of the 27 posters presented, faculty, staff, and collaborators of the Global Division were involved in research on 30% of the posters on display.
