During its 21 years, CRG has always valued learning from and supporting our community partners. We often use the saying here, “It takes a village.” Working with colleagues around the state and beyond, we welcome opportunities to share and gain knowledge about children, adolescents, and adults with behavioral healthcare issues. Building and maintaining networks with respected colleagues allows CRG providers to strengthen the community’s capacity to help people in need.
Dr. Joshua Lowinsky, CRG’s adolescent and adult psychiatrist, wears a number of professional hats. Among these is co-founder of the Primary Care Psychiatry Foundation and current president of the Indiana Psychiatric Society. Dr. Lowinsky will be making presentations this summer at three important professional gatherings. On June 15, he will give the keynote address (“Building a Primary Care Psychiatry Workforce”) at the Indiana Rural Health Association conference in French Lick Retreat and Conference Center. On July 23, Dr. Lowinsky will return to French Lick to speak at the Indiana Academy of Family Physicians’ annual conference. This time he will speak about depression and bipolar disorder in primary care. On July 25, he will give two talks in Michigan on Mackinac Island for Medical Education Resources which will include presentations on adult depressive disorders, anxiety disorders, suicide, and prevention of psychiatric disorders.
In reflecting on opportunities to work with colleagues throughout Indiana, Dr. Lowinsky commented, “If I can begin to share, in a presentation, the excitement and privilege I feel on a daily basis while working at CRG and in IPS schools with individuals and families who courageously fight to make their lives better, then I am hitting my mark.”
