About Phoebe Chi, MD
Phoebe Chi, MD, MPH is a physician, author, and medical editor whose humanitarian efforts over the past two decades have spanned from the regions of Central America to that of Sub-Saharan Africa. She attended college at the University of Texas at Austin, received her medical training at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, and obtained her public health and global health degrees from the University of North Texas Health Science Center.
With a focus on health promotion and disease prevention and management, Dr. Chi has developed chronic disease management programs for health systems across the nation aimed at reducing hospitalizations and enhancing the quality of life of those living with chronic conditions. She is the author of Being Empowered for a Healthy Heart: A personal guide to taking control of your health while living with chronic conditions—a poetry-infused health guide that has been praised by readers as being the “Chicken Soup for the Body and Soul.”
Dr. Chi is the founder of Pendants for a Cause, a nonprofit organization that creates handcrafted sea glass jewelry for the purpose of raising funds to fight illness, provide care, and bring awareness to medically vulnerable populations, both in the U.S. and abroad.
PhoebeMD.com was originally started in 2013 by Dr. Chi as a personal medical poetry blog during her medical residency years. Since then, it has evolved into a platform for inspiring and educating readers through a combination of health education and the arts. While all of the earlier content on PhoebeMD features original poetry and health articles penned by Dr. Chi herself, today, PhoebeMD focuses on showcasing the talents of other writers, bloggers, and authors. This includes a delicately curated mix of inspiring health stories, encouraging words, and original poetry—all aimed at uplifting and empowering our reader community.
We hope you enjoy your stay. 💙
