Suzanne Holroyd, MD
Dr. Suzanne Holroyd is the Program Director for the Geriatric Psychiatry Fellowship Program. She began her interest in Geriatric Psychiatry as a fellow at Johns Hopkins Hospital. She was recruited by the University of Virginia to develop a Geriatric Psychiatry program which she successfully led with developments in clinical programs (outpatient geriatric psychiatry specialty clinics, Geriatric Psychiatry inpatient specialty service, a large regional long term care/nursing home service) as well as research programs including successful NIH grants. Her research interest has been in geriatrics but with a special interest in the neural regions involved in psychosis and visual hallucinations. Educationally, she developed and directed the University of Virginia Geriatric Psychiatry Fellowship program from 1995 until 2014 when she came to Marshall University. She has been busy building the Marshall Psychiatry department and new residency program but is now excited to add Geriatric Psychiatry fellows to the Marshall team!
A native of Huntington, WV and graduate of Marshall University, Bridget Griffith is the Program administrator for Marshall Psychiatry. She has been with Marshall Health for 9 years. Bridget started in Family Medicine then came to Marshall Psychiatry to assist with the two educational programs, Clerkship and Residency. After several years of assisting with both programs, the two programs were spilt up and she took over the Clerkship portion for a year then accepted the Residency and Fellowship Administrator position, which she truly enjoys. Bridget strives to provide an organized, supportive and less stressful residency experience.
In her free time, Bridget loves to spend time with family and friends doing cookouts, game night, bonfires and anything else that allows them to spend time together making memories. They also enjoy boating and working around the house on projects. With three kids, she stays very busy but always tries to remain grateful and knows she is very blessed.
