A global perspective on patient care

Before Jessica L. Malmad, M.D., M.P.H., entered medical school, she knew she wanted to be part of the solution to increase access to basic primary care services for the underserved.

Not only did she enter medical school with a master’s of public health in global health from Emory, she also spent years gaining experiences domestically and in Latin America in order to become fluent in Spanish and to help her better serve a Latin-American population.

Because she has a special interest in women’s health, Malmad says, “I look forward to working with women of all ages to educate them on things such as their contraceptive options and updated guidelines for cervical and breast cancer and other recommended screenings.” Malmad also knew that she desired to work in a setting that enabled her to interact with people from all over the world. “Stone Mountain Primary Care is a great location for me because of our community’s diversity. Every culture seems to interpret and manage illness and disease differently, and I look forward to both learning from my patients in this regard and also teaching them what I can about health.”
