Bathsheba Wariso, MD, MHS, MPH

Deputy Director, Chair of Community Engagement

Bathsheba Wariso earned her Medical Doctorate from Meharry Medical College, her MPH from the  Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and is currently undergoing her residency training in Obstetrics Gynecology at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital . Born in Nigeria, her interests in health and healthcare delivery stemmed from her lived experiences in her native country and underserved communities here in the United States.  Witnessing how barriers to access of medical care too often resulted in deleterious impacts to families, she developed a keen interest in health disparities and engaged in supplementary studies as both a National Institutes of Health Academy Scholar and a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health Policy Scholar. Dr. Wariso’s mission is to provide equitable care to communities that need it most both domestically and abroad.
