Ashrita Hanmiah, DO, MSc, MBA

Ashrita is originally from Buffalo, New York. She received her undergraduate degree at Canisius College majoring in French and minoring in Biology and Gender Studies. During this time, she extensively worked with immigrant communities and volunteered with a local refugee resettlement agency. This inspired her to pursue a summer global health program with the University of Geneva centered on a human-rights based approach to healthcare principles and global health policy. She then pursued her Master's in Global Health and Development at University College London, United Kingdom. In medical school, Ashrita continued to explore the nuances of health equity and sustainable health initiatives. From rotating at a hospital in Thailand to taking a solo trip to Cuba, she is passionate about learning about the diverse circumstances and attitudes that influence global healthcare practices. Ashrita completed her MBA in Healthcare Management alongside her medical degree and believes strongly in family medicine physicians being agents of change in paving the way for a more equitable healthcare system. Outside of medicine, Ashrita enjoys exploring different ethnic cuisines, finding new bakeries, spending time outdoors, and building her travel bucket list.
