Dr. Phyllis Zelkowitz is retiring after more than 30 years of research into maternal and reproductive mental health, as well as playing a leadership role in research at the JGH.
The name says it all: The Institute of Community and Family Psychiatry has excelled for 50 years by seeing the patient not just as an individual, but as someone with complex ties to family and community, against a backdrop of religion, race and ethnicity.
