About Me

copyright habibatunaumd.com


I am an American doctor and graduate of Cornell University, Ithaca, New York where I was an independent theater major with a premedicine concentration. I obtained my medical degree from the Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, South Carolina and completed my residency at New York-Presbyterian / Lower Manhattan Hospital (formerly NYU Downtown Hospital). After working at a traditional group practice in upstate New York, I established a private solo practice in North Carolina for the past ten years.

I was born in London, England, and lived my formative years in Nigeria, West Africa prior to immigrating to the United States at the age of 15. I am of West Indian and Nigerian descent. I currently live in North Carolina with my husband of twenty-two years and three children.

On a personal note, I don’t take myself too seriously. I love to laugh, cook and eat exciting international foods and explore the world through travel, beauty and fashion. I have a passion for all things creative, from DIY projects to creating beautiful braiding styles and flawless weaves as well as the best Jamaican rum cake you have ever tasted.

This blog is designed to share information on health, beauty, and lifestyle issues while giving you an honest behind the scenes look of my life and food adventures. I hope to not only entertain you but to teach and inspire as well.

I encourage you to send questions or suggestions for topics that are of interest to you.
