New Series Brings Physician Leaders Together With Community

Categories: News

The Greenwich Hospital Office of Development launched its Top-of-Mind Healthcare Conversation Series this fall, providing hospital friends and supporters an opportunity to learn together from leaders within areas of clinical importance to the communities Greenwich Hospital serve.

The first program in the series, Behavioral Health: Where We Stand in Addressing an Intergenerational Crisis, featured Amir Garakani, MD, Chair of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health at Greenwich Hospital and Joshua I. Hrabosky, PsyD, Clinical Psychologist and Program Director of Outpatient Behavioral Health at Greenwich Hospital. The interactive dinner, which took place on September 14 at the Greenwich Country Club, centered around the expansion plans  surrounding Behavioral Health services, particularly within our community’s adolescent and adult populations.

On November 2, friends of Greenwich Hospital gathered at the Belle Haven Club for the second dinner program in the series, Active & Proactive: Your Heart Needs Both.

Progress surrounding diagnostics, treatments, technology, research and clinical trials within the Heart and Vascular field is swift moving and exciting. Dr. Christopher Howes, Greenwich Hospital’s Chief of Cardiology; Dr. Eric Velazquez, Physician-in-Chief at the YNHH Heart and Vascular Center; and Dr. Michael Chen, Greenwich Hospital Yale Medicine Cardiologist, shared how these advances are transformative for both clinicians and patients alike.

The next program in this interactive series, which includes conversation and questions between the physicians and audience, will take place in Spring 2023.
