Power Woman Wednesday: Nadine Kaslow

#PowerWomanWednesday is a series on how some of the most powerful women in the world fight for women’s rights.

This week’s Power Woman is Nadine Kaslow. Dr. Kaslow will deliver the Annual Mary Lynn Morgan Lecture on Women and Health tonight at 5:30 pm at the Miller Ward Alumni House.

 

Dr. Kaslow’s lecture, “Leadership Matters”, will discuss the joys and challenges of being a woman leader. Her lecture will provide some valuable insight about her experiences in the field of Psychiatry. Dr. Kaslow is the current President of the American Psychological Association, Editor of the Journal of Family Psychology, and the Psychologist for the Atlanta Ballet Company.

 

She is our power woman because of her tireless efforts to make mental health services more accessible. Dr. Kaslow is very passionate about supporting people with mental illnesses and empowering them to lead meaningful lives. She joined the Emory University School of Medicine faculty in 1990 and has worked at Grady since that time. She has chosen to work at Grady because of her commitment to helping underserved and underprivileged populations receive culturally competent, evidence-based, biopsychosocially-oriented mental health services.

At Emory, she is Past-President of the University Senate and Past-Chair of the Faculty Council and former Special Assistant to the Provost.


We are very excited for her lecture tonight and hope to see you there. To read more about Dr. Kaslow’s impressive work click here.
