Doctor Jay Miller '01 treats Boston’s vulnerable populations during the pandemic
Jay Miller '01 is a doctor on the front lines of COVID-19, treating some of those most vulnerable: Boston's homeless population. Through his position as a Global Medicine fellow at Mass General Hospital, Jay provides clinical care at Boston Healthcare for the Homeless. These days, Jay cares for patients with COVID at a variety of sites, including Boston Hope, the temporary field hospital erected at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
"Medical work’s clear social justice mission is particularly stark during this period," Jay noted. "The burden of infectious disease is not borne equally across society, and that is certainly true of COVID."
Starting in July, Jay will begin working in the CDC's Epidemic Intelligence Service program, where he will draw not only on his current experience, but also his work in Uganda over the last decade, with the NGO Doctors for Global Health and with MGH Global Health.
We are proud Jay is a member of our Shady Hill community and we thank him, as well as all members of the Shady Hill community who work in the medical field. #changemakers
