Rhonda M. Moorman, M.D., J.D.
Dr. Rhonda M. Moorman grew up on a rural farm in the palms and pines of Southeast Georgia. She was educated in the Georgia public schools, where she graduated Valedictorian of her class.
Dr. Moorman next attended Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, where she was a member of the inaugural class of Mercer's Great Books Program. While at Mercer, she obtained a B.A. in English with a minor in business. Dr. Moorman graduated from Mercer summa cum laude and at the top of her class.
Thereafter, Dr. Moorman attended the Harvard Law School, where she was a classmate of Barack Obama's, graduating a year before our future president. After working for a British barristers' firm and completing a 2-year federal judicial clerkship, Dr. Moorman joined the Atlanta office of King & Spalding, where she served as a litigator specialized in the representation of health care providers and institutions in matters of employment.
Motivated by her younger brother's battle with malignant melanoma, Dr. Moorman eventually joined the fourth generation of physicians in her family by obtaining her M.D. from the Medical College of Georgia. Thereafter, she trained in Internal Medicine and Radiation Oncology at Emory University School of Medicine located in Atlanta, Georgia. Dr. Moorman completed her residency training in Family Medicine at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital located in her hometown of Albany, Georgia.
Currently, Dr. Moorman practices both medicine and law in her home state of Georgia. In medicine, she specializes in the provision of emergent, urgent and primary care in some of the state's most rural settings. In law, she specializes in the representation of physicians and other health care providers. Dr. Moorman is a frequent lecturer on health care, health care reform, legal medicine, medical ethics, and end of life care.
Though she has been writing for a lifetime, Mr. Obama and Me is Dr. Moorman's first published book.
