The American Health Council honored Nancy Carroll, MD as “Best in Medicine” for her outstanding contributions to the mental health field. A psychiatrist at Empowered for Excellence in Toledo, Ohio, Dr. Carroll consults with children who are developmentally challenged and collaborates with professionals on casework for the children she works with. Additionally, she conducts family therapy, patient care, and works with adolescents twice a week. Since entering the healthcare field 21 years ago, Dr. Carroll has expanded her skills and expertise in Disabled and Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.
While pursuing a medical degree at the University of Toledo College of Medicine, Dr. Carroll worked alongside a wonderful mentor, Dr. Walden, who inspired her to pursue the psychiatric field. After earning a medical degree in 1979, she completed a psychiatric residency at the University of Toledo Medical Center and immediately applied her skills to establish a strong foundation for her prosperous career.
Among her many professional accomplishments, Dr. Carroll is proud to have established a Rescue Crisis Emergency Care for Children organization in 1995. To commemorate her skills, the National Alliance on Mental Illness honored her with the Practitioner of the Year Award. Dr. Carroll is proud to be a distinguished fellow of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and a distinguished fellow of the American Psychological Association. She is an active member of the latter and served as its former national committee chair.
She is affiliated with Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center, St. Luke’s Hospital and ProMedica Toledo Hospital. Dr. Carroll is proud to have been a speaker at the National Perinatal Association’s conference last spring, where she delivered a perinatal presentation. In her free time, she enjoys making jewelry with precious gemstones and contributes time and funds to Double ARC.
With a successful career at hand, Dr. Carroll attributes her achievements to the guidance of her role model, Dr. Davenport. She plans to continue to excel in her career by creating a larger impact in her community and work on developing a committee for Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, a condition that causes brain damage and growth problems as a result of alcohol exposure during pregnancy.
