Barry F. Chaitin, MD DLFAPA

Dear Colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that I draw your attention to the candidacy of Barton Blinder, MD PhD for the Presidency of the APA.

Bart has been a colleague and friend for forty years. He is a highly principled individual and has served the APA in many capacities over the years. In addition, he has been a thoughtful member of the Assembly for over twenty years and now serves as the Area 6 representative.

Bart is a highly respected, busy clinician and has been active as a teacher and thoughtful scholar. Currently, he is teaching the seminar on child development to our child fellows at University of California, Irvine.

I am enthusiastic about Bart’s candidacy and encourage you to review his election material at
