About Lydia Davis
Hometown: I grew up right across the West Virginia border, about 20 minutes outside of Morgantown, near Smithfield, PA
Medical School: West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine, in Lewisburg, WV
What I like best about being a Mountaineer: I grew up going to Mountaineer sporting events with my family and friends, and spent a lot of time at the University, where my mother worked. I continued to follow WVU sports, though I lived in many other places. It is very nostalgic to be back in this area and finally as a Mountaineer!
Why Family Medicine? Mostly because I value the opportunity to deliver healthcare in the setting of a continued relationship with my patients and their families. I value family and the idea of caring for a community of people. I also found it was the only area of medicine that offered the opportunity to fulfill a number of my interests: clinical and hospital medicine, mental health, emergency medicine, and wilderness medicine.
Before Medical School: I attended the University of Virginia where I received my bachelor's degree, spent a great deal of time traveling, and also explored other careers such as teaching and behavioral therapy.
I enjoy: Music and the Outdoors: skiing, fishing, and hiking
Integrative Health, Addiction
Clinical interests: integrative health, gut health/microbiome, mental health/addiction medicine, integrative fitness, sports medicine, pharmacy through nutrition
