Dr. Anna-Lee Asamoah, DO, MS will present, “Lithium - The Mineral, The Myth, The Legend

Anna Asamoah is a fourth year psychiatry resident here at St. Louis University.  She graduated medical school cum laude from Kansas City University and chose to specialize in psychiatry after realizing in medical school that she did not enjoy performing diabetic foot exams or gowning up in sterile operating rooms and would rather take a seat and listen to a patient’s narrative.  In residency she has made a special effort to maintain her curiosity, consistently looking up information to benefit her patients and build her clinical knowledge.  She gives credit to her husband and family and her co-residents for keeping her head above water through residency.  She also is grateful to her patients who give her perspective on how fortunate she is to be here doing what she enjoys.
