Psychiatrist and author Drew Ramsey, MD, will present “Feed Your
Mental Health” on Tuesday, February 25, 6:00–7:00 pm at the
National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, Wyoming. Dr. Ramsey’s
talk is a featured presentation of St. John’s Health Words on Wellness
and the Cognitive Health speaker series.
“In 2018, the Community Health Needs Assessment identified mental
health as the primary health issue in Teton County,” said Julia
Heemstra, director of wellness at St. John’s Health. “Even
with evidence-based solutions, treatment often overlooks a critical factor:
what people eat. Dr. Ramsey, an expert in the new field of nutritional
psychiatry, will offer insights into what foods promote and erode mental
well-being, and how to boost mood in the winter through lifestyle changes.”
Tickets are $10 and are available at
www.stjohns.health/wordsonwellness. Doors open at 5:30 pm, and attendees will have access to Museum galleries
prior to the presentation. A book signing will follow.
Drew Ramsey, MD, is an assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Columbia
University College of Physicians and Surgeons and one of psychiatry’s

health. Board certified in psychiatry and neurology, he founded The Brain
