School of Medicine Graduate Looks Forward to Her Second Career

Suzanne Watson

Suzanne Watson, a former pastor of an Episcopal congregation in the San Diego area, received her AARP card and Wake Forest School of Medicine acceptance letter in the same week.

At the time of her admission, Watson was a single mother of four—her husband committed suicide after suffering depression in silence for years. Watson graduated in May and started her psychiatry residency in July.

She hopes to help others find successful treatment for depression and to prevent loved ones from having to endure the loss and pain she and her children experienced.
