FQHC TRACK RESIDENT: PROSPECT HILL
Hey y’all! My name is Anna and I am a lifelong North Carolinian. I grew up in a small town called Bunn (population ~350), and I worked on a strawberry farm throughout high school. For college, I attended the University of North Carolina as a Morehead-Cain scholar. This scholarship provided numerous opportunities to explore my passions. I spent my summers training as a wilderness EMT, conducting community health assessments in Nicaragua, working on healthcare quality improvement projects in Dallas, and advocating in DC for rural healthcare.
After completing my bachelor’s degree in Health Policy and Management, I attended UNC again for medical school and my Masters in Public Health. Inspired by my own rural upbringing, I dedicated myself to improving the health of underserved communities across North Carolina. As a UNC School of Medicine Kenan Rural Scholar, my focus was primarily on community-based solutions for rural food access and nutrition. I was privileged to work alongside diverse groups including churches, non-profit organizations, Black and women farmers, and local companies.
Now, as a proud four-time Tarheel and UNC Family Medicine Resident, I am passionate about providing high quality care for all North Carolinians. My particular interests include comprehensive preventative medicine, maternity care, outpatient procedures, and public health initiatives. I am honored to be a part of a training program where I can learn from Family Medicine experts who are committed to improving the health of our local communities.
Outside of medicine, I love spending time with my husband, daughter, golden retriever, and extended family. I also enjoy art, interior design, cooking, and being involved in my local church.
