Dr John Campbell has served previously on the ANPA Council. He completed his psychiatric residency at Brown University where he was chief resident. He also completed a neuropsychiatry fellowship at Brown. Dr. Campbell has been a longstanding member of the ANPA and has led many committees including Education and Membership. His term as Immediate Past President is currently coming to a conclusion. Dr. Campbell would be honored to serve on the council and support the organization through the unique challenges presented to us by the pandemic. He is currently the senior physician executive and chief medical informatics officer at Northern Light Acadia Hospital, part of the Northern Light Health System of Maine.

Jay Salpekar, MD, FANPA

Dr. Jay Salpekar has been an academician overlapping psychiatry and neurology for over 25 years.  He trained as a child psychiatrist at Washington University in St. Louis and at Yale University.  He is currently the director of the Neuropsychiatry in Epilepsy Program at the Kennedy Krieger Institute, and is an Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Neurology at Johns Hopkins University Medical School.   Dr. Salpekar has been a member of the American Neuropsychiatric Association since 2005, and received fellow status in 2015. 

Dr. Salpekar also has distinguished fellow status in the American Epilepsy Society and in the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.  The American Epilepsy Society recently honored him with the Rebecca Goldman Kaufman Award for Ethical Neuropsychiatry.  He serves on the editorial boards for several journals including Epilepsy and Behavior, Journal of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences, and Epilepsy Currents.  He is a long time principal investigator for clinical research projects involving psychiatric illness associated with epilepsy, and is widely published on how neuropsychiatric paradigms apply to pediatrics.  He recently co-edited a textbook, Pediatric Neuropsychiatry: A Case Based Approach, which emphasized those themes.  

For nearly four years, Dr. Salpekar has been Chair of the ANPA Membership Committee.  During that tenure, he has been a strong advocate for increasing membership.  He has also worked to increase involvement of members by enhancing the Special Interest Groups, and by encouraging submissions of member-initiated program proposals.   Conceptually, Dr. Salpekar views ANPA as one of the most important organizations that exists in psychiatry and neurology today.  He considers the efforts to enlighten understanding of brain and behavior relationships as critical for advancing medical science and for society as a whole.  Dr. Salpekar is committed to the mission of ANPA and looks forward to serving as council to strengthen and expand the organization’s influence.
