Zena Salim completed her internal medicine residency at Kaiser Permanente in Oakland, California. She received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Southern California and attended medical school at Michigan State University. She is originally from Kenya but grew up across many states including Illinois, Kentucky, Texas, and California. Her personal experience with her family members in Kenya along with refugee camps she volunteered with stimulated a passion in global medicine. She’s excited to be a part of the HEAL community and to dedicate her career to learning and focusing on low resource healthcare settings. In her free time, she can be found eating ice cream, traveling, or spending time with family.
