Alisa Awtry, M.D.
University of California, San Diego School of Medicine; Alisa grew up in Ventura, CA, the homeschooled daughter of two chiropractors. She eventually left home for Grove City College in Pennsylvania before teaching the Deaf in rural Mexico. It was there she found her passion for medicine and returned stateside to attend UCSD. There, she immersed herself in managing their student-run free clinics and addressing access to care issues in the Deaf community. Her passions in medicine include whole person care, adolescent medicine, women’s health, palliative care, and Deaf access to care. Outside of medicine, she enjoys hiking, biking, colorful vegetables, and making (and eating) popsicles, all preferably with her husband.
