How Your Support for the Foundation Helps People, and How They Help Others
Susan Jacquez-Dean, M.D., grew up in Buchanan, Michigan graduating from Buchanan High School in 1994. With the help of a Unity Health Education Fund Scholarship, she attended University of Michigan, graduating with an BS in Microbiology in 1994. She graduated from Rush Medical College in Chicago in 2002, with continued support from a scholarship grant from the Unity Fund.
After completing her residency at the Medical College of Wisconsin, she did her Child and Adolescent Psychiatry fellowship at the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, graduating in 2007. Today, Dr. Jacquez-Dean is board-certified in General Psychiatry, and will soon take her Child Boards.
Because I am trained in both adult and general psychiatry, I see both parents and children. I treat the whole family, which is very rewarding. I do a combination of inpatient and outpatient consultation work. I am very grateful for the support that the Michigan Gateway Community Foundation has given me throughout my training, and if there are any high school/college students interested in a degree in medicine, I would be happy to talk with them.
