(Oconomowoc, Wis.) Jody A. Langford, M.D., joins the medical staff at Rogers Memorial Hospital August 1, 2013, as a child and adolescent psychiatrist, primarily working with children and adolescents in the eating disorders program at Rogers’ Oconomowoc location.
Dr. Langford is board certified in general psychiatry and was awarded chief fellow in child and adolescent psychiatry during her postgraduate training. Her residency program in psychiatry and behavioral medicine, as well as her fellowship in child and adolescent psychiatry, was completed at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) Affiliated Hospitals in Milwaukee. A member of the Medical Student Education Committee at MCW, Dr. Langford has been actively teaching residents, fellows, medical students and other health professionals on the subject of eating disorders for the past few years, receiving the resident/fellow teaching award at her graduation.
“I am passionate about helping people restore a healthy relationship with food and their bodies,” Dr. Langford said. “Eating disorders are complex illnesses requiring a complete evaluation that involves all aspects of the person’s life. I believe care should be a collaborative process with patients, families and other providers. Each patient has a unique set of strengths, and it’s my goal to help patients recognize these strengths and utilize them in their recovery.”
In addition to eating disorders, Dr. Langford’s clinical interests include anxiety and mood disorders. She is a member of the Academy of Eating Disorders, American Psychiatric Association, American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Physicians for Social Responsibility.
