Psychiatry, medicine, biology, nutrition
BioHi I am Amy and I am a psychiatry resident at Saint Louis University (SLU)! I have experience treating people dealing with mental health issues and advocating for comprehensive treatment for people struggling with serious mental illness. I studied nutrition in college at the University of MN and have continued to give lectures on nutrition counseling as a resident. I went to medical school at SLU and fell in love with psychiatry during that time. I will finish my psychiatry residency in 2023 and plan to pursue a fellowship after that time. I love sharing my passion for learning, discovering and discussion with other people and mentoring is an awesome was to do this! I love helping people find their strengths and have loved helping high school students become interested in different aspects of science and medicine. In my free time, I love learning about psychiatry, nutrition and health in general. I also love to cook, watch theater, hike and long distance run.
Culinary health for the community
Create a curriculum on health and nutrition which focuses on quick, healthy and affordable meals for busy family. This would be either distributed on your local elementary school's website for family members or given as a hands on cooking class.
Decreasing stigma around mental health in high school students
Perform a literature review on successful ways to increase dialogue in mental health in high school students. Use this to create either a website or a student group to implement these efforts.
Nutrition curriculum for elementary school students
Create 2 to 3 short, interactive lessons for elementary school students about food and exercise in a way that does not focus on weight or “good/bad” foods and present at local elementary school
