Psychiatry chair named treasurer of American Psychiatric Association
Gregory W. Dalack, M.D., chair of the University of Michigan Department of Psychiatry, was recently elected treasurer of the American Psychiatric Association (APA). Dalack’s two-year term begins in May following the APA’s annual meeting in New York City.
As treasurer, Dalack will join the APA Executive Leadership team, working closely with the APA’s chief financial officer. He will regularly present financial reports to the APA board of trustees and APA assembly. He will chair the audit committee and be an ex-officio member of the investment oversight committee, and finance and budget committee.
“I am looking forward to serving the APA and its members in this leadership role,” said Dalack. “I have been a member of the APA since year I was a third year medical student and I have certainly benefited from the educational, advocacy and networking opportunities it provides. I am excited to be able to give back in this way and participate in the APA’s work to support psychiatrists in the face of a rapidly changing landscape for our patients, their families and our field.”
