Lamar Johnson, M.D.

Lamar Johnson is currently a fourth year medical student at Meharry Medical College in Nashville, TN. His career interests include completing residency in Internal   Medicine/Pediatrics and possibly a fellowship in Adolescent Medicine. His father was in the air force and he moved around a lot as a child, but he calls San Antonio, TX home. He graduated from Howard University in Washington, DC with a BS in Biology.   He’s always been deeply invested in helping those who need it most, and the field of global health allows him to do this while also feeding his hunger to travel and learn about different cultures. He will be volunteering at a clinic in Roatán, Honduras called Clínica Esperanza. He loves working with children of all ages, so in addition to providing medical care with the clinic, he will also be visiting schools in the area to perform eye exams and do vision screenings. Ultimately, his goal is to have a career that incorporates providing primary care, teaching medical students, and traveling abroad at least once every year to continue to serve underserved populations.
