Dr. Vivian Okirie is a Resident Physician at UT Health Science Center at Houston in Internal Medicine. Although new to the city, she has quickly grown warm to the Texas flare she encounters from her patients on a daily basis.  The combination of being a Morehouse School of Medicine graduate, being raised in Alabama, and retaining her Nigerian culture has cultivated her passion of working in typically underserved populations with compassion and grace.

Vivian serves as a Freelance Editor in addition to Content Creator of a medical social media platform (@thenaijadoc) that works to educate the public on the journey from medical school to residency.

Vivian enjoys fitness, traveling, trying new recipes, and having random thought provoking conversations with strangers (who become friends). Please feel free to contact me via any the included outlets.
