Kenya Palmer’s enthusiasm for healthy living and well-being permeates her work as a nurse practitioner at Boston Medical Center.

Working in the Department of Endocrinology, Diabetes, Nutrition and Weight Management, she uses her 14 years of experience as a personal trainer and strength and conditioning coach to address obesity with her patients, especially those from underserved populations.

Palmer, who received her bachelor’s in rehabilitation counseling from Boston University and a master’s in exercise science from Syracuse University, has developed programs that address nutrition and weight management for families and promote awareness of the social determinants of health.

A board-certified family NP, she received an Excellence in Nursing Award in February 2017 from the New England Regional Black Nurses Association.
