Wednesday Lecture Series: Paranoia and Violence

April 7, 2021

We sincerely apologize to those who attended the guest lecture with Dr. Resnick recently and were offended by some of his remarks. At Sheppard Pratt, we always strive to identify subject matter experts that speak to topical issues in the field and that align with our core values and guiding principles.

We will be sharing the feedback we have received with Dr. Resnick so he is aware for future presentations, and we will not be posting the recording of the presentation or sharing for future CME efforts.

We look forward to hosting you for a future lecture and providing you with continuing medical education opportunities. 

Sincerely,

Todd Peters, MD

VP and Chief Medical Officer
