Dr. Zena White’s Bio:
I was born and raised in the Los Angeles, CA area and completed my undergrad there as well. I then moved to Grenada where I attended St. Georges University and received my Medical Degree. Prior to medical school, I completed the UC Davis School of Medicine Post Baccalaureate Program. I also worked as a Research Trainee at the Saban Research Institute of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles in the Dept. of Cardiothoracic Surgery, receiving co-authorship on a publication in the area of xenotransplantation. In addition, I worked as a Medical Research Specialist for an evidence-based medical research consulting firm called Doctor Evidence and worked in the mortgage industry as a Data Specialist for Freddie Mac. On a voluntary basis, I have engaged in various medical and nonmedical related activities and served in numerous ministries within churches. Prior to residency, I had the opportunity to travel abroad to visit various parts of Europe and engage in a medical selective in Prague, Czech Republic. Outside of work I enjoy exercising and anything related to fitness, such as running, resistance training, zumba and various forms of dance. In my spare time, I like to design costume and fashion jewelry and attend musicals, plays and dance performances. I also have an interest in natural hair care and reading books in the areas of self-improvement and spirituality. In the future, I have a strong desire to improve the health care of underserved communities with a particular interest in community health, women’s health and international medicine. I plan to serve in communities, both locally and abroad, incorporating health fairs, home visits and medical mission trips into my practice of caring for vulnerable populations and spreading the love of God.
