Dr. Moffic is currently a private pro bono community psychiatrist, having previously been a tenured professor at MCW. Over his almost 50 year psychiatric career, he specialized in the Tikkun Olam of trying to serve the underserved and mis-served poor and minority patients. For that, he was awarded the one-time Hero of Public Psychiatry in 2002 from the American Psychiatric Association. He also received recognition from Jewish Family Service in Houston and Milwaukee for his work there. His current project follows being asked to lead the writing of a cover story article on Psychiatry and Racism for Psychiatric Times, the largest circulating publication about psychiatry.
