Phoebe Chi, MD, MPH, is a physician, educator, and author whose humanitarian efforts have spanned the regions of Central America to sub-Saharan Africa. She obtained her undergraduate degree from the University of Texas and subsequently received her medical training at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and her public health and global health postgraduate 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 comprehensive chronic disease management programs for various health systems across the nation aimed at improving the quality of life and well-being 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 both the body and the soul.”
Dr. Chi started Pendants for a Cause in September 2019, after hearing of the devastation in the Bahamas caused by Hurricane Dorian. Aware of the dire need for medical care and resources but limited by geography, Dr. Chi decided to utilize her artistic skills to raise support and awareness for this crisis. Through this event, Pendants for a Cause was born.
