As September draws to a close, PAGNY concludes our celebration of the AMA's Women in Medicine Month with our final feature, Dr. Maryann Popiel, Chairperson of Behavioral Healthcare Services at NYC Health + Hospitals/Jacobi.
Read more about Dr. Popiel’s career in psychiatric care and why she joined PAGNY:
“I went into medicine, specifically psychiatry, because of my interest in the mind-body connection. Helping patients understand their illness and optimize their potential is paramount to me. Education and effective treatment go a long way in combating the stigma of mental illness. PAGNY’s mission aligns with my philosophy of providing quality care with a biopsychosocial focus, making it immensely gratifying to work for this organization.”
Dr. Popiel’s dedication to improving mental health exemplifies and fulfills PAGNY’s mission to deliver exceptional patient-centered care to vulnerable communities in New York City. Thank you, Dr. Popiel, for your care and expertise!
