She also completed two years of family medicine residency at Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta, GA. During this time, her interest in preventive medicine was piqued even more during chronic disease management encounters. The advent of her father giving up a blossoming political career due to preventable chronic health conditions, and eventually passing away from complications thereof only strengthened her interests. Hence, her pursuit of a career in preventive medicine and public health with a particular interest in epidemiology. She believes that prevention of disease is a key management step in healthy living, decreased healthcare cost, better quality of life and decreased hospitalizations for avoidable complications. Her interests include leveraging innovation and technology to provide high quality care, access to healthcare for all, chronic disease risk assessment, education and prevention.
