“I want to contribute to advancing the lives of people who often do not have people advocating for them, such as residents of South LA.” – Jeffrey Shibata, UT Health San Antonio, MLKCH Internal Medicine Residency Program
Dr. Shibata shares that medicine has a place close to his heart, having lost a family member at a young age. He’s volunteered in Mexico, which helped fuel his passion for helping the less fortunate and the medically-underserved. “Aside from working as hard as I can to provide the best medical care possible to the community, I want to be a voice, an advocate, for the underserved who live here,” he says. Dr. Shibata chose the Internal Medicine Residency Program at MLK Community Healthcare to help make real changes in the community.
