Rachel Deatherage, MD

Why did you choose your profession?
I wanted to be a physician since I was a child. I was a sick child and my doctors worked with me. I became interested in how they knew so much and wanted to be like them. Of course, over time I’ve been fortunate to experience medicine as the crossroads between science and humanity.

Why do you work at NOAH?
I have always wanted to return to work in underserved communities. I love that NOAH prioritizes care to all.

Hobbies/Activities
I enjoy time with my family, baking and music.

If you won the lottery tomorrow, what would you do?
I don’t know. I would probably keep working, travel more and donate the rest.
