Hillary Harrison is a psychiatrist at Putnam Hospital Center and Health Quest Medical Practice. She received her dual BA in Biology and Environmental Studies from Oberlin College and her medical degree from Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. As a physician treating brain based illnesses, Dr. Harrison is acutely aware of the tremendous brain development that occurs in early childhood and its long term implications. She sees early childhood education as a critical issue. The value of children achieving their full potential, cognitively and emotionally, isn’t significant only for themselves and their families, but for the greater community. As a mother of young children in Westchester County, she appreciates the tremendous peace of mind parents get from knowing their child is in trustworthy hands when they cannot be there themselves.
