Adrienne Hampton earned her B.A. in Biology from Longwood University in Virginia and completed her medical degree at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. She was initially drawn to family medicine through her strong interest and investment in the community. Before beginning medical school, she completed an AmeriCorps year of service as an HIV counselor and tester in Washington, DC, where she witnessed firsthand how profoundly social forces shape health outcomes. She also worked as an intern with the Mautner Project in Washington, DC, where she designed and implemented a wellness intervention for African American women who partner with women. During medical school, as an Albert Schweitzer Fellow, she implemented prenatal yoga programs in two low-income Chicago communities to combat the stress experienced by so many of the expectant mothers in those areas. These experiences reaffirmed her calling to family medicine, as well as her ultimate goal of creating an inclusive, family-centered practice that will make a positive difference in the health-status of low-income communities. In her free time, Adrienne’s hobbies include yoga, classical vocal music, and creative writing.
