Marsha-Gail Davis, MD, is a primary care internist and preventionist. Originally from the island of Jamaica, she received her MD from the University of California, San Diego, and completed her residency in the Yale Primary Care Residency Program. At ACLM, in addition to serving on the Board as Young Director, Dr. Davis is a leader of the Health Equity Through Lifestyle Medicine (HEAL) Initiative. She believes prevention is the best treatment for many diseases, particularly chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and obesity. Her goal is to make prevention the priority and to make prevention popular!

Listen to Dr. Davis's creative commentary on the current state of health in the United States as it pertains to epidemic levels of preventable chronic disease, the social determinants of health that contribute to these unsatisfactory health outcomes and the health disparities that exacerbate poor health outcomes in marginalized communities, particularly communities of color. Our current health climate can be best described in one word: WACK!
