Clinical & Teaching Interests: 

Dr. Murrow is a native Georgian, but she spent the better part of two decades living elsewhere before finally admitting that Athens is the best place to live. She received her BA in Religion at Wellesley College in 1997. She pursued graduate training in public health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, where she obtained her M.Sc. in 1999. She then worked as an infectious disease epidemiologist and clinical trials coordinator for five years before completing her medical degree at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Dr. Murrow happily returned home to Georgia in 2006 to pursue her residency training at Emory University. In 2009, she jumped at the chance to teach medical students at the newly formed GRU/UGA Medical Partnership, where she continues to serve as Assistant Professor of Medicine and lead the community health curriculum. After years of volunteering at Mercy Health Center, Dr. Murrow became its Medical Director in 2014. Along with Mercy’s staff and army of volunteers, she feels passionate about providing excellent free care to uninsured patients in Athens and surrounding counties. Dr. Murrow’s interests focus on health literacy and improving health in underserved populations. She serves on the boards of the Athens Health Network, UGA HEROS, and the Georgia Alliance for Health Literacy. Outside of work, she enjoys trying to turn Georgia clay into good dirt, running, and travelling with family.

Personal Interests: 

Dr. Murrow resides in Bishop with her cardiologist husband, Dr. Jonathan Murrow, and three feisty and usually barefoot girls: Madeleine, Ella and Sophie. Dr. Murrow looks forward to welcoming the inaugural class of residents to Athens Regional!
