Amber Lin MD

Associate Program Director

As an eight-year-old, Dr. Amber Lin heard about people in Africa dying from easily treated diseases and decided to become a doctor in order to help. Dr. Lin chose to specialize in Family Medicine during her medical school OB/Gyn rotation when she discovered the joy and challenge of treating both babies and adults. “No two days are similar,” Dr. Lin explains. “As a Family Medicine practitioner, I can get to know an entire family as if they’re my own.” Dr. Lin has an interest in Tropical Medicine and Global Health.

Ana Bejinez-Eastman MD

Ana Bejinez-Eastman MD likes science so much that she pursued it as a profession and became a physician specializing in family medicine. She says this specialty give her the opportunity to interact with patients of all ages and the flexibility to achieve work-life balance.

She has a particular interest in public health and health care for all. While living in Northern California, she served very marginalized populations, Native Americans and migrant workers. It made her realize the impact that lack of affordable healthcare, poor access to medications and inadequate healthcare literacy had on outcomes. She hopes that her compassion and interest in improving outcomes for these groups would carry over to her students and residents and encourage others to spend some time caring for the underserved.
