Sarah Hemeida, MD

Dr. Hemeida’s interest in health policy and leadership began as one of eight regional directors for the American Medical Student Association, and through work with Physicians for Social Responsibility. During her CU Family Medicine residency, she worked with a primarily refugee, immigrant, and uninsured patient population. Today she is a faculty member in the same clinic, practicing full-scope family medicine. As a resident she worked with the Colorado Academy of Family Physicians (CAFP) testifying and helping pass Medicaid dental expansion in 2013. Upon residency completion she worked as the first health policy fellow for the Farley Center where she worked on graduate medical education reform and presented at the 2014 GME Summit in Washington, DC. She also worked longitudinally with the Robert Graham Center, spending a month in D.C. as the center’s visiting scholar. She continues work with the Farley Center and will be starting a NRSA-funded primary care research fellowship-health policy track in summer, 2016.
