Since she was small, Dr. Maureen Dale always wanted to be a doctor. At age four, her physician father started teaching her to ‘read’ chest x-rays. Even though she considered other careers along the way, medicine has always been the frontrunner. After completing both her undergraduate studies and medical school at the University of Virginia, Dr. Dale came to UNC-Chapel Hill. Here, she completed a Residency in Internal Medicine followed by a Fellowship in Geriatric Medicine. 2023
