Rhea Boyd, MD

Pediatrician and Child Health Advocate

About Rhea

Dr. Rhea Boyd was born in Akron, Ohio. She grew up witnessing the economic and outcomes disparities for communities of color - early experiences that inform her work now. 

Rhea is a pediatrician in the Bay Area, yet her role extends beyond the walls of the hospital. When not in the clinic, she spends the other half of her time working on community advocacy projects and research. As an avid writer, Rhea also explores the intersection of health, justice, and community on her blog, Rhea.MD, and makes regular contributions to panels, medical blogs, and national discourse. 

She is among a new generation of doctors leading the way in advancing social empowerment through medicine.
