The decision to become a doctor came easy to Dr. Syeda Hamadani, who grew up in Nashville listening to country music and yearning to travel. “Some of the most caring and generous people were the doctors in my community,” she says. “In college, I interned with local physicians, and I saw firsthand the positive impact that they made on their patients.” A dream opportunity presented itself when Dr. Hamadani received a grant to travel abroad for a year as a Thomas J. Watson fellow; during this time, she was able to learn about an international approach to medicine and further hone her interest in allergy and immunology. “I’ve been practicing for nearly three years now, and I love when I am able to bring much-needed allergy and asthma relief to my patients,” Dr. Hamadani shares.
