Longtime AAGP Member and Volunteer, Jeanne Jackson-Siegal, MD, has Passed Away
The AAGP family begins 2016 with a heavy heart. On Saturday, January 2, Dr. Jeanne Jackson-Siegal passed away. Prior to her illness, Jeanne contributed an enormous amount of time and energy to the AAGP. She was a generous mentor to many people and past chair of the Clinical Practice Committee. This brilliant, passionate and caring physician left her mark on the field of geriatric psychiatry and all who had the pleasure of knowing her.  She will be sorely missed. Her family has asked for privacy and time to mourn their loss.
