The Center for Law, Brain & Behavior puts the most accurate and actionable neuroscience in the hands of judges, lawyers, policymakers and journalists—people who shape the standards and practices of our legal system and affect its impact on people’s lives. We work to make the legal system more effective and more just for all those affected by the law.

Morgan Medlock, MD, MDiv, MPH has most recently completed her residency in adult psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH)/McLean Hospital, in Boston, MA.  As the inaugural director of the Spirituality and Mental Health consultation service at McLean Hospital, she developed a model for spiritual assessment and integration into mental health treatment.  She was also a co-founder and chair of the MGH/McLean Resident Advocacy Committee (RAC), the residency’s first trainee-led advocacy group.  In this role, Dr. Medlock was instrumental in developing mission and vision statements, a strategic plan, an online presence, and a path for partnership with the hospital and community leaders to engage at-risk individuals in preventative health practices and education.  Her goal is to contribute to policymaking that increases wellness for the most vulnerable individuals, to introduce treatment and community re-entry programs that affect the decriminalization of individuals with substance use disorders, and to work in collaboration with faith leaders and churches on developing centers for healing mind, body, and spirit, especially in inner-city communities.  Dr. Medlock received her medical degree from Mayo Medical School, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, in 2013 and her Master of Divinity degree from Andrews University, Berrien Springs, MI in 2011.
