Glenn Martin MD DLFAPA
Area 2 Trustee-elect

I am pleased to say that the results of the APA election are posted and I have been elected to the position of Area 2 Trustee to the APA Board of Trustee. Psychiatry is not easy. Managing mental illness is a challenge for our patients and their families. Stigma is still a real problem, especially that which has become institutionalized and almost invisibly woven into the fabric of payment, law enforcement and care delivery. It will be an honor and pleasure to continue my work on behalf of our patients, our members and our profession in this new role
