I am Imelda Mercedes Medina.

My lifetime mission is service. I was born to serve, and practice person and people centered care.

I am originally from Nicaragua and live in Miami, FL. I’ve worked and trained at Ponce School of Medicine (MD), University of Miami Miller School of Medicine (BS and MPH) and Columbia University – New York State Psychiatric Institute.


I have my own Non Profit called Familias Unidas International, Inc. dedicated to helping the poorest of the poor through Health Promotion and Disease Prevention. And I just started my personal business called Public Health Academy, LLC through which I would like to make an everlasting impact in the life of every person I come in touch with, through Health Education and helping adults with Self-Care.  

On a personal note, I like to play the piano, compose music, and share with nature and friends. I enjoy silence, to read, write, go for a walk, to the beach, Barnes and Noble and watch historical & biographical movies, among other activities.

I look forward to working with you all!

Warm Regards,

Imelda Mercedes Medina, MD, MPH
