Meet Sallie

Anuja_Mehta.jpgAADPRT's Past-President is Sallie De Golia, MD, MPH.  At Stanford University, she is a clinical professor of psychiatry and behavioral health services.  We recently caught up with her to find out more about her personal side.

What are you most thankful for and why?
I'm probably most thankful for those folks who think deeply and thoughtfully about the most difficult problems we face in our world… Any my hope is that we use these insights to move humanity a bit farther forward. It can be challenging…

On a more micro level… I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to raise two beautiful individuals who will make the world just a little bit better. And to have been able to do that with an unbelievably supportive and thoughtful mensch. That can’t be beat.

What would you like to do for a living if you weren’t a psychiatrist?
I LOVE what I do and am eternally grateful to have the opportunity to learn and care for others while educating the next generation of psychiatrists.  I really can't imagine a better job... but... Ok so if I COULDN'T do that, I'd learn to paint.
 
What has been your favorite travel destination and why, or what is a destination you’d really like to experience and why? 
That's a tough one.  I haven’t been to so many places but living in Paris during college was pretty far up there (and pretty long ago….). Spending several months in the Andes in Ecuador (Cuenca) with my children was a close second – such an amazing country with beautiful people. But I’m headed to Rwanda soon to develop a partnership with our department, so that may be up on my list as well!
