President's Message
Change Agents

Last Thursday was a first for Roswell Rotary as we hosted a mix of online and in person meeting. Combined, 75 Roswell Rotarians took part. We proved that Rotary is a flexible gathering that offers ways for everyone who wants to stay connected.

In the words of Paul Harris, we must be revolutionary from time to time. Now is such a time for us to embrace change that will strength us as we remain true to our core values. 

This Week's Speaker

Dr. Ryan Breshears is a board-certified clinical health psychologist and healthcare leader skilled in the development of strategy and programs in the behavioral health and wellness arenas. A native of Georgia, Dr. Breshears obtained his undergraduate and doctorate degrees from the University of Georgia. After concluding his residency in Denver, Dr. Breshears returned to the greater-Atlanta area where he serves as the Chief Behavioral Health Officer for Wellstar Health System and the Director of Psychology and Psychiatry for the Wellstar Medical Group. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, he has led Wellstar’s system-wide strategy to support the emotional needs of the workforce. In practice, he works with patients with complex medical conditions, providing neuropsychological evaluations and health psychology interventions.
