First Year Fellows

Hazel Brogdon, MD

Medical School: University of Washington School of Medicine
Psychiatry Residency: Psychiatry Residency Spokane
Hazel Brogdon was born and raised in Chugiak, Alaska prior to studying biochemistry and playing softball at Marietta College in Ohio. In between undergrad and medical school, Hazel worked in suicide prevention at the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium providing suicide awareness and intervention training to several Alaska Native communities throughout the state. She was a part of the Alaska WWAMI Program with the University of Washington School of Medicine prior to joining the Psychiatry Residency Program in Spokane. She enjoys spending time with her family and fur babies, hiking, gardening, and making it out to Liberty Lake or Medical Lake as much as possible in the summer.

Cedar Neary, MD

DUANE GREENMedical School: University of Washington School of Medicine
Psychiatry Residency: Psychiatry Residency Spokane
Dr. Cedar Neary was born in Seattle, WA and raised in the nearby suburbs of Mercer Island and Bellevue. They went to Colorado State University for undergrad, where they received a B.S. in Biomedical Sciences. They then returned to WA to attend UW Med School. Going into medical school, they were interested in working with youth and adolescents after multiple prior jobs working in outdoor education and trip leading with youth in CO and WY. However, throughout med school, they were consistently drawn to the more humanistic approach that psychiatry offered. Their interest in working with youth has persisted through residency and they are currently in their first year of the Spokane Child and Adolescent Fellowship. They are especially interested in working with the LGBTQ community, as well as advocating for marginalized populations, which led them to joining the DEI (Diversity, equity and inclusion) resident sub-committee for a second year in a row. One of their favorite parts about the Spokane Psychiatry Residency (and reason they chose to stay for CAP Fellowship) is the people. The program directors and faculty are incredibly passionate about teaching and creating a rich, inclusive, and supportive learning environment for residents and fellows. The residents (and co-fellow) are kind, caring, down-to-earth and supportive of one another. Plus, Spokane is a great place to live, with ample accessible opportunities for their favorite activities, including trail running, bike riding (they really enjoy the 12 minute ride to work through the neighborhoods), hiking, paddle boarding, lake swimming, and cross country skiing. A recently added new adventure is learning to sail!
