Robin Mogul, MD
Robin J. Mogul, MD grew up in the Albany area of N.Y. earning her BS from Union College in Schenectady. She graduated with honors having a double major with thesis research in both Biology and Philosophy and was a Steinmetz Honors Seminar Participant speaker at the Greater Boston Undergraduate Conference on Bioethics as well as a member of Sigma Xi. Robin was a founding member and VP of Union’s Scuba Club, conducting original research in Marine Biology at the Shoals Marine Laboratory on Appledore Island, in conjunction with Cornell University. She then graduated from Boston College earning an MS, with her thesis research in Molecular Cancer Genetics at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and later returned to N.Y. to join her finance, earning an MD from the SUNY Health Science Center in Syracuse, N.Y. Following Medical School Robin attended Stanford University for a 5 year joint Residency Program in Psychiatry and Fellowship in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry; but was uprooted by her now ex- husband’s medical career ultimately finishing her Residency in Psychiatry at the University of Utah Medical School and later her Child & Adolescent Fellowship at Emory University, G.A.
Robin has had private practices in Psychiatry at the Neuropsychiatric Institute in Salt Lake City, and Park City, Utah where she resided (and skied almost daily). She was the youngest member and second female partner in private practice at the Atlanta Area Family Psychiatry Clinic, in Sandy Springs, G.A. and most recently has been in private practice in Charlotte, N.C. In addition to practicing medicine, Robin has also been a Substitute Teacher and Adjunct Professor teaching children of all ages including nursing and culinary students. Additionally she is an avid gardener and chef who has attended advanced culinary classes and holds a degree in Wine Studies. Finally and most importantly, she is “Mom” to her son Christopher who is a budding aerospace engineer and artist extraordinaire as well as Jacques, an adopted Norwegian Forest Cat.
Deeply disturbed by the Childhood Obesity Epidemic, Robin has spent the past few years as a “food fighter”, reaching out to teach nutrition and healthy living to all age groups and has been a advocate for increasing PE in our schools as well as working to start school gardens, designing “Edible Gardening” classes with a focus on “the garden to table” including food preparation to children as young as 3 years old. She has served on several boards and committees to improve access to healthier foods and provide education to those most in need and she is collaborating on very practical texts and cookbooks, focusing on healthy eating for life. As a Psychiatrist, Robin is likewise deeply concerned by the demands put on our children by our fast paced American lifestyle, particularly at school, where the pressures are inordinate and often academically disastrous compounded further by harried home and social lives, not to mention poor diets.
Given her nature for bridging the hard and soft sciences and her passion for healthy living, encompassing the mind, body and spirit, Robin is hopeful that through Integrative Medicine she will be better prepared to reach out to our children, helping them lead fuller, more balanced, healthy and happier lives. She aspires to practice Integrative Psychiatry while focusing on Wellness and intends to keep being a “food fighter”. Someday she hopes to find the time for a culinary degree in addition to spending more time in the garden, traveling, scuba diving and skiing.
