My name is Teresa Allen, and I am a physician. I graduated from medical school in 1988. I then did my residency in Family Medicine for 3 years. I worked in the Emergency Department for 13-14 years. I also did many medical assignments on Indian Reservations in Nevada, Arizona and South Dakota. This actually began my interest in public health. For the last 13 years, I have worked in occupational medicine and my ultimate goal is to become board certified in occupational medicine for which I need a MPH degree. To date, I have already attained the certificate in Foundations of Public Health in May 2019.

I am an avid traveler.
