Dr. Lloyda Williams on the Need for Black Psychiatrists


Meharry Medical Group’s Dr. Lloyda Broomes Williamson, M.D. is featured in an editorial in Heart & Soul Magazine about the critical needs for Black psychiatrists across the country. 

Dr. Williamson is an expert in adolescent and child psychiatry and is Professor and Chair of the Department of Psychiatry at Meharry Medical College which oversees Meharry’s psychiatry residency program. 

“It is critically important that we work to address the racial, societal, educational, institutional and political factors which negatively impact our ability to recruit Black students, especially Black males, into medical school and into specialties such as psychiatry,” Williamson says in the article.
