Biographical Sketch:
Dr. O’Dell splits her time between Poynter Hall and Charles Drew Health Center. Dr. O’Dell’s primary clinical interest is serious mental illness, particularly early intervention in psychosis. She is a champion for the development of services across the spectrum of care for people suffering with psychosis and is developing a multidisciplinary subspecialty clinic for this patient population. 

Prior to medical school, she worked as a case manager for adults with serious mental illnesses, and she enjoyed her time as part of Community Alliance’s ACT team during residency training.
