Infectious Diseases

Leah Harvey received her undergraduate degree in public health from Johns Hopkins University. Prior to medical school, she worked in clinical research, focusing on the transmission, prevention, and screening for HIV and sexually transmitted infections in marginalized communities and resource-limited settings. She went on to earn a Master of Public Health degree from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, focusing on infectious disease epidemiology with an additional certificate in humanitarian assistance and disaster relief. She completed medical school at Michigan State University and residency in internal medicine at Boston Medical Center, where she was a member of the HIV pathway. She will be a combined Infectious Disease and Addiction Medicine Fellow at BMC. She is interested in addressing the infectious sequelae associated with injection drug use, particularly HIV and viral infections, and in optimizing treatment strategies and care delivery models to address health disparities and reach vulnerable patients. Outside of medicine, she enjoys hiking, traveling, and cooking.
