University of Utah Family Medicine Residency Representative – Dr. Anita Albanese

Medical School: Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine at University of Nevada Las Vegas

Hometown: Las Vegas, NV

Best thing about Utah? I love the variety of events that take place all seasons including various festivals that showcase the many cultures in SLC and, of course, the nature.

Favorite way to de-stress: I am a big foodie, traveler, and concert goer. Anytime I have free time, I love to spend time with my friends and family sharing a meal, traveling, or attending a music event. On a more low key night, I love binge watching shows from various streaming services.

Fun fact: My favorite thing to do is bring people together wether it be a themed event, being the champion of “Foodie Friday,” or being captain of our residency kickball team.

Why family medicine? I joined Family Medicine due to the opportunity to engage in full-spectrum family medicine in an urban underserved environment including obstetrics, women’s health, transgender care, LGBTQ+ health, adolescent medicine, geriatrics, Latino health, healthcare policy, research, and medical education.
