Dr. Lashika Yogendran’s passion for global health grew naturally from her personal experiences. Born in Saudi Arabia, she has also lived in Toronto, North Carolina, Shanghai, Brooklyn, and Chicago. Lashika earned her BA in chemistry and classics from the City University of New York – Brooklyn College before going on to earn her MD and MS from the Chicago Medical School at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science. During medical school, Lashika completed extensive global health work. She volunteered in hospitals in Cuzco, Peru and worked in a clinic in Uganda. These experiences shaped her worldview and she hopes to pursue global health work after residency. Closer to home, she was involved with her medical school’s oncology interest group and helped organize the annual St. Baldrick’s Day fundraiser to raise money for pediatric cancer research. Lashika is drawn to family medicine by its care for diverse patient populations and the focus on care across the life-span. Lashika enjoys playing volleyball, cheering on the Chicago Cubs, checking out new restaurants, and playing trivia – she has even appeared on “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.”
