A native of New Orleans, Louisiana, Dr. Hancock’s background includes degrees from the David Geffen School of Medicine at University of California - Los Angeles (UCLA) and John Hopkins, Bloomberg School of Public Health.  She completed her medical residency at the acclaimed Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, where she gained considerable knowledge and experience while working with some of the nation’s leading physicians and clinicians.    

 

Her journey to providing quality health care to youth would bring her  back east to the Nation’s Capital at Children's National Medical Center, where she served as one of 108 doctors specializing in Pediatrics. As Associate Director of the Center’s Obesity Institute, she deepened her engagement with family health and wellness issues on a national scope while serving communities across the Washington, DC Metropolitan Region. She would later go onto become an Associate Assistant Professor of Public Health at George Washington University School of Public Health where you can still find her today as one of the school’s leading lecturers.    

 

With over 14 years of medical clinical experience, Dr. Hancock would eventually discover her calling to provide care and guidance to those who needed her help most: youth and families residing in often under-served urban communities. That pivotal moment came from the loss of a patient who at age 14 stood at 4’ 11” and weighed nearly 300 pounds.  Despite her efforts as an early medical care provider, Dr. Hancock learned by reading a local newspaper article 4 years later, that her patient would succumb to the diseaseobesity at the early age of 18. This regrettable incident cemented in Dr. Hancock’s mind the conviction to do all that she can to reduce childhood obesity for youth living in primarily urban and under-served communities.
