Julia Potter


I am an adolescent medicine physician who has particular interest and expertise in adolescent reproductive health, specifically menstrual disorders and contraception. I am clinically trained in Pediatrics and completed a subspecialty fellowship in Adolescent Medicine. My prior research and clinical work have focused on adolescent contraceptive decision-making, parent-adolescent communication, urban youth/families, and adolescent substance use. I also teach residents and medical students. I am committed to providing career mentorship to undergraduates, medical students, residents, and adolescent medicine fellows.
