Deborah V. Hall, MD is a graduate of the University of Connecticut School of Medicine and current first year resident in the Harriett Lane pediatrics residency program at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
She was honored to spend last year as the National President of the American Medical Student Association, advancing the organization’s work on healthcare access, systems reform, and medical school curriculum. She is thrilled to be involved with the Beyond Flexner Alliance, working to further the social mission of medical education as well as promote the role of students in shaping the future of healthcare and healthcare education.
Advocacy has always been at the core of Deb’s work. Before beginning her medical career she was an advocate for families of children with neurological disabilities. As an advocate, she helped families to navigate service systems and work for policy reform. She plans to carry this work into her career as a physician through clinical practice, education, and advocacy.
Deb lives in the Washington, D.C. area with her wife. When not working, she enjoys spending time with her son, cooking, reading, and practicing yoga.
