 A Personal Note from Dr. Day   

I grew up in the southern hospitality of the “Sweet Onion City” of Vidalia, Ga and received my undergraduate degree less than an hour away further south in Statesboro, Ga. I currently serve as an official ambassador for my alma mater of Georgia Southern University (GSU) being recognized as one of the distinguished alumni for the 40 under 40 Class of 2016. While at the university, through leadership organizations, I began my life ministry to work with underserved populations through organizing community service projects for the Statesboro community and mentoring selected freshmen to help with demographic retention rates experienced by the student body. Outside of my studies and extracurricular work, I learned while at GSU amongst the 20,000+ students, an institution of higher education can genuinely feel like a home and the people like family. Thriving in this capacity, I used this concept of family in helping select my medical school as well as my family residency program.

At Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM), I found my next “family” as well as my fiancée. Upon graduation, I was recognized as the recipient of the Primary Care Award for best exemplifying the entirety of the school’s mission statement: to improve the health and well-being of individuals and communities, address primary health care through programs in education, research, and service with emphasis on people of color as well as the underserved urban and rural populations in Georgia, the nation, and the world. In medical school, as a National Medical Fellowships’ (NMF) scholar, I used my community service-learning knowledge from MSM to coordinate a diabetes education program for a federally qualified community health center servicing a lower socioeconomic rural Hispanic population in Los Angeles, California. Additionally, through NMF, each year of my final three years at MSM I conducted independent community health projects for a shelter for families experiencing homelessness in Atlanta, Ga. This experience coupled with medical missionary work in rural Haiti and working at the CDC on a clinical systematic review team shaped that my innovation as a physician should know no limit when it comes to giving patient populations the best healthcare possible no matter the barrier.

I first learned about the University of Teas Medical Branch (UTMB) from my fiancée who is currently an ENT resident. I was excited to know that UTMB’s mission statement to improve health for the people of Texas and the world was just as expansive as my own mission statement. I chose the UTMB Family Medicine Residency Program because it encompassed everything that I desired in a program—from academics and clinical training to community engagement and personal holistic development. I have come to know this residency program and its community; just as I’ve known my hometown, undergrad, and medical school as a genuine family.

Following residency, through the National Health Service Corps, I will work with underserved populations experiencing the most need. My academic and clinical interests include public health, addiction medicine, healthcare policy, global health, and healthcare administration. My interests outside of medicine include traveling, participating in athletic competition, reading, and spending time with family and friends.
