Primary Care Physician
Amy Smith, MD, MPH spent her early years in remote areas of Honduras, where her family developed the first hospital in the region and her love of clinical medicine and public health was born. She received the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation scholarship, completed a BA in nutritional sciences at Cornell University, an MD at George Washington University, and an MPH at the Harvard School of Public Health. She then completed residency in Family Medicine at CHA-Tufts in Malden. Since residency she has worked as an attending primary care physician, first as a float physician and later at Cambridge Family Health and North (CFH/N). She has had the privilege of participating in the first Process Improvement Team (PIT) at Malden, and facilitating the PIT at CFH/N. As a Kraft Center for Community Health Practitioner from 2015-2017 she developed a screening and referral system for food insecurity with a community partner, Project Bread, which has subsequently been adopted by various clinics at CHA and across Massachusetts. She is committed to partnering with others in systems change and innovation towards improved health and well-being for all, particularly for its most vulnerable community members.
