In 40 years, Fatima Cody Stanford, MD, MPH, hopes that her work helps to achieve a reduction in domestic and global obesity rates. She’s focused her career on obesity medicine and is currently a Zuckerman Fellow at Harvard, a unique platform that allows her to cross-pollinate ideas from the perspective of multiple professional industries, all united on public sector problems. Stanford is also a clinician and research fellow in obesity medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital.
When it comes down to it, Stanford says that her success (and many degrees) stem from her open outlook on the changing world of healthcare. “There is tremendous opportunity for growth and innovation; it’s about finding the right path for your interests,” she says. She also believes that the recipe for reduced health disparities includes the alignment of innovation and technology, multi-disciplinary care across sectors and health care reform for improved access.
