Holloman named NAMI exemplary psychiatrist
The National Alliance on Mental Illness honored Dr. Garland Holloman, associate professor of psychiatry, as one of its 20 Exemplary Psychiatrists during the American Psychiatric Association's annual conference in San Francisco on May 20.
"We are proud to honor these psychiatrists for their exceptional dedication to people living with mental illness," said Michael J. Fitzpatrick, NAMI executive director. "They have earned our respect and thanks."
NAMI's annual Exemplary Psychiatrists Awards honor psychiatrists who "go the extra mile in their commitment to excellent mental health care, reducing the stigma that has traditionally surrounded mental illness and working closely with NAMI members in their communities for public education and advocacy." NAMI State Organizations or NAMI Affiliates nominate each year's honorees.
