Welcome to this bonus episode of the MDedge Psychcast. In this episode, as a tribute to the late Carl C. Bell, MD, we would like to replay highlights from the interview that Lorenzo Norris, MD, did with him last year at the annual IPS (Institute on Psychiatric Services) Mental Health Services conference in Chicago.
Dr. Norris, host of the MDedge Psychcast, is assistant professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at George Washington University, Washington. Dr. Bell, who died Aug. 1, was a psychiatrist at Jackson Park Hospital in Chicago and an emeritus professor of psychiatry at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He spoke with Dr. Norris in episodes 26 and 27 about identifying and preventing fetal alcohol spectrum disorders.
