Biography

Hi ya'll! My name is Meera Nagarsheth (she/her). I am the daughter of immigrants from India and was born and raised in Jensen Beach, FL with my parents and older sister. I attended undergrad where I studied Microbiology and Immunology and medical school at the University of Miami. In between undergrad and medical school, I attended graduate school at Vanderbilt University, where I obtained my Master's in the Social Foundations of Health. Throughout medical school, I have been involved with community organizing efforts centered around anti-racism, anti-imperialism, and anti-capitalism in medicine as well as abolition and reproductive justice. I chose family medicine and Brown's family medicine residency program because of my interests in abortion care, harm reduction, gender affirming care, and community organizing centered around dismantling the systems of oppression that steal from the ability of individuals and marginalized communities to lead healthy lives on their own terms and reimagining community-centered healing that prioritizes radical love, abolition, autonomy, self-determination, and justice. In my free time, you can find me reading, exploring the outdoors, experimenting with new recipes, and spending time with family and friends.
