A native of Rochester, NY, Dr. Russell earned her B.S. in Biochemistry from Boston College. She obtained her M.D. degree with a Distinction in Community Service from the University of Rochester in 2007. She completed her internship and residency in Family Medicine with an Area of Concentration in Research at Lancaster General Hospital in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Dr. Russell completed a Master's of Clinical Investigation at the University of Rochester in 2012; her thesis was "Program Completion, Lifestyle Changes and Weight Loss by Location of a Healthy Living Program". This study provided preliminary evidence that type of location may be an important element when designing and implementing interventions and that health center based interventions should be a focus of further obesity treatment research.
