Career Interests


Neeha grew up in Cary, NC, before moving to Chicago to join Northwestern University’s Honors Program in Medical Education. In college, she studied psychology and global health and competed on Northwestern’s Bollywood dance team. During medical school, she was clinic chief of an education- centered student run medical clinic, and volunteered in clinics for underserved Chicago communities. Her research has focused on improving healthcare for patients with disabilities, a lifelong interest she hopes to incorporate into her future career. Neeha enjoys dancing, practicing yoga, reading novels (especially historical fiction and mystery), cooking, trying new restaurants, traveling, and spending time with friends and family. At this time, she’s considering outpatient-based practice, perhaps in rheumatology, allergy and immunology, or endocrinology.
