This Week's Speaker
Virtual Healthcare

Dr. Jeremy Boyd is a primary care physician here is Roswell with 10+ years of experience, and a Family Physician within Wellstar Medical Group for the last 3 years. He earned his undergraduate degree from the University of North Georgia, and his medical degree at St. Matthews University School of Medicine.

After finishing medical school, he headed north to complete his Family Medicine Residency at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center in Bronx, NY and followed this up with a year in Obstetrics at Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center also in the South Bronx, which can be described as one of the most underserved parts of our country. Upon completion of his training he went on to serve as a Core Faculty Attending for the Family Medicine Residency Program at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center’s in Queens, NY where he applied his skills in training the next generation of primary care physicians.

Eventually Dr. Boyd decided it was time to leave the big city and return home to Georgia, but he didn’t come straight home. Instead, he took an extended sabbatical in which he backpacked around the world for nearly a year. The eye-opening experiences of roughing it on a world tour highlighted many of the world’s health disparities around the globe.

Now, returning home he has been back on the front lines of our country’s rapidly evolving healthcare delivery system since 2017. Additionally, he has spent this last year as Medical Director in the development of Wellstar’s first ever Virtual Anticoagulation Center of Excellence.

Dr. Boyd is visiting us to describe the digital-health revolution’s ongoing transformation of our healthcare delivery system and how new technology is closing the gap for some of our most vulnerable individuals here in the U.S. He sees this opportunity of the future now at our fingertips and a vision of virtual health one day expanding its reach around the world and into areas that need it most.
