Rasheeda Hall, MD, MBA, MHS, assistant professor of medicine (Nephrology), is drawn to complexity. When she was a resident at Duke, she says, “I felt a heart tug to nephrology because these patients were sicker and more complex patients.”
Today, after completing a fellowship in Nephrology at Duke, she is a geriatric nephrologist, with the goal of making life simpler and better for these patients.
