Addiction Medicine Fellow
Elizabeth Abbs, MD is a UCSF Primary Care Addiction Medicine Fellow. She attended University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and served as an active member of their Training in Urban Medicine and Public Health (TRIUMPH) program where she developed a community-based stress reduction class, Venga y Relajese, inspired by her experiences in cardiovascular risk reduction for Latino immigrants in the South Bronx as an AmeriCorps-elected geriatric case manager and for urban youth living outside of Lima, Peru as a Fogarty Global Health Fellow. Her passion for preventative medicine, trauma-informed care, and community programming for the underserved led her to UCSF for residency in Primary Care Internal Medicine. Outside of the hospital, she enjoys philosophizing about "balance in medicine." She finds strength in nature, food, art, her new cat, and using her physician voice for social justice.
