Jeanne Gambucci, DO, MPH

Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine

Areas of Interest: 
I have many interest in medicine, most of which fall within the family medicine spectrum: underserved medicine, international medicine, community medicine, lifestyle medicine, OB-Gyn infectious diseases, global health and public health.

Research Experience/Interest: 
Prior to medical school, I worked in tuberculosis clinical trials and remain interested in tuberculosis and HIV research.

Daniel-Hawthorne-MD.tmb.ashx

Daniel Hawthorne, MD

University of Illinois College of Medicine

Areas of Interest: 
The great thing about family medicine is that you get to be interested in lots of things! I'm especially interested in working with underserved Latino populations, international medicine, and hopefully one day teaching in a residency as well as overseas.

Research Experience/Interest: 
I am very interested in cultural concepts of health and wellness. I would like to explore the relationship between diet and a person's perception of chronic disease. I believe that a lot of miscommunication occurs between doctors and their patients largely due to different cultural backgrounds. Identifying these areas of difference I hope will lead to better doctor-patient relationships and overall better patient care.

Non-Medical Interests and Hobbies: 
I grew up in South America, so I love watching and playing soccer. I also love music and have played in bands through college and med school. Outside of that, my wife and I enjoy exploring all the amazing restaurants Chicago has to offer, having people over, gardening, and playing with our dog Finn.

Why did you come to West Suburban? What do you like best? 
I was interested in West Suburban because of the unique mix of experiences the program offers. Ranging from underserved FQHC clinics to managing an ICU and an excellent OB service, it was hard to find a better place to train as a family physician. I think what I like best is the opportunity to get hands-on experience in so many disciplines while working alongside the wonderful faculty and residents.
