Dr. Ellyn Marie Johnson, a Georgia Health Sciences Psychiatry and Health Behavior Resident, has received a minority fellowship from the American Psychiatric Association/Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

The fellowship, which identifies emerging leaders in psychiatry, encourages recipients to train in areas of the discipline under-represented by minorities by awarding programming funding. Recipients also receive travel funding for the association’s council and annual meetings.

Johnson’s plans include starting a science café lecture series, adapted to educate the community, physicians, and medical residents about mental health and expanding cultural diversity programming in the Department of Psychiatry and Health Behavior.

Johnson earned her medical degree from Case Western Reserve University.
