The Health and Aging Policy Fellows Program has placed fellow Luming Li, MD, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry, with the Suicide Research Team at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH).
The year-long fellowship, which began in September, provides fellows the opportunity to promote policies that will benefit aging men and women, including policies that affect cost of care, economic and physical security of vulnerable and disadvantaged older adults, and the promotion of civic engagement.
Li, one of 12 fellows in the current class, will work with officials at NIMH around the area of suicide prevention, including policy development and associated materials. Some of her work will be completed in Washington, D.C.
The program is open to physicians, nurses, social workers, psychologists, health care administrators, epidemiologists, economists, and other professionals with a strong commitment to health and aging issues.
Li is a 2018 graduate of the Yale Psychiatry Residency Program. She is Associate Medical Director for Quality Improvement at Yale New Haven Psychiatric Hospital.
