WHO Announces Adoption of New International Classification of Diseases
Imagine playing golf and not having words for birdie or bogey. Imagine preparing dinner without the guidance of cookbooks that describe what a soufflé is and what the ingredients for lasagna are. The ICD-11 is the organizing volume, the guidebook, that captures our current knowledge for all health conditions, including mental health and substance use disorders.
Columbia Global Mental Health Programs Summer Internship
Welcome to our Columbia Global Mental Health Programs' undergraduate summer interns, who will be working on a variety of qualitative and quantitative global mental health research projects with us for the summer!
Dr. Tia Powell directs the Center for Bioethics for Montefiore Health System and Albert Einstein College of Medicine. She is a national expert on dementia, and for full disclosure, she is a dear friend. So, it is with enormous joy that I share with you a conversation I had with Tia about her recently published book Dementia Reimagined.
Congratulations to the Global Mental Health Programs' Research Associate, Nicole Khauli, who will start her PhD in Clinical Psychology this fall at Palo Alto University, and former intern Janelle Gore, who will start her master's degree this fall at Emory Rollins School of Public Health.
From Russia, With Love
