Stacy S. Drury | Professional History
Dr. Stacy Drury is a board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrist and the Psychiatrist in Chief at Boston Children’s Hospital since March of 2023. Dr. Drury came to Boston Children’s Tulane University where she served as the Associated Director of the Tulane Brain Institute, the Executive Director of the Tulane Violence Prevention Institute, the Vice Chair of Research for Pediatrics, and the Chief Research Officer for Children’s Hospital New Orleans.
Both her clinical work in medically ill children with co-morbid mental illness and her own research focus on the parent-child relationship as a critical buffer against the effects adversity. Her transdisciplinary research seeks to define the biological mechanisms through which adversity, including trauma, violence, child abuse and neglect, racism, and structural inequity drive negative health outcomes and health disparities.
In joining Boston Children’s Hospital she recognizes the urgent need for transformative community engaged and culturally responsive efforts targeting the prevention, treatment, and cure of child mental illness.
