Richard Powers, M.D., Named Medical Director for Outpatient Services

powersI am delighted to announce that Dr. Richard Powers has been named as the new medical director for outpatient services, with oversight of all outpatient operations in both the EFH and CPM clinics. He returned to UAB as an outpatient psychiatrist with the Department after having retired from UAB several years ago, followed by service at the Tuscaloosa VA.  He has also served as the Medical Director for the Alabama Department of Mental Health, a role in which he was of considerable influence and support as the Department sought funds to expand residency programs.  He is truly multifaceted and talented, trained as both a neuropathologist and a geriatric psychiatrist.  He is an outstanding clinician and educator. Please support him as he transitions into this role, and join the Department in welcoming him.
