My name is Darlinda Minor. I'm originally from New Orleans, La. I attended medical school at SUNY Stony Brook in Long Island, NY.I am currently chief resident in the psychiatry residency program at GW.

I grew up in Connecticut and New Jersey, but feel most at home in Maine where most of my extended family lives. I moved up to New Hampshire to attend college and medical school at Dartmouth, where I nurtured my love for the outdoors. I am currently a second year pediatric resident at CNMC, in the Community Health Track. My community work and research in both medical school and residency has focused on nutrition, obesity and more recently on its connection with

food insecurity. I am very interested in public health policies governing food

quality/distribution particularly in areas of poverty (both urban and rural), and how I can make this a part of my career.
