Alair Newman, DO

Child Fellow

Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences, College of Osteopathic Medicine

Academic interests: Childhood anxiety disorders, early psychosis, and emergency mental health

Personal interests: Taking walks around the Charles in Boston, music, writing, reading and watching basketball

I was drawn to UMass because of the combined child/adolescent program and a chance to live in New England!


Sarah Palmer, MD

Child Fellow

UMass Chan Medical School

Academic interests: Child psychiatry, Genetics, Care of Children in Foster Care, Women's Mental Health

Personal interests: Exploring local farms for apple and berry picking, local trails for hikes and runs, trips to the Berkshires and to Boston, family time & travel (someday!)

The opportunity to get a well-rounded community psychiatry experience as well as see a variety of inpatient settings including long term state hospital, forensics, and med-psych really drew me to UMASS. Their strong program in combined child psychiatry also was a big draw!

I love the balance between the peace and quiet of a suburb and the excitement of city environments. It is easy to find natural beauty here but also easy to find a great restaurant, concert or art exhibit.
