Time: 7:30pm

Topic:  “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Psychiatrists, but Were Afraid to Ask”

Speaker: Kara Zimmerman Hwang, M.D.

Dr. Hwang is a Board Certified in General Psychiatry.  She decided in middle school that she wanted to become a psychiatrist.  After graduating from Purdue University with a B.A. in psychology, she earned her medical degree from Indiana University in 1996. She completed her psychiatry residency at Indiana University Medical Center.

Following residency, Dr. Zimmerman Hwang practiced at Community Hospital North in Indianapolis.  Her practice at that time was limited to treating inpatients, including many people with serious, chronic mental illnesses. Frequently, when patients were being discharged, they would inquire if she had an outpatient office, as they wished to continue treatment with her.  She opened a private outpatient practice in Fishers in 2006. She is a member of the American Psychiatric Association and the Indiana Psychiatric Association.
