Meet the Fellows

Every year, RHAP selects a cohort of powerful, diverse, and inspiring family physicians dedicated to providing, teaching, and advocating for equitable and person-centered reproductive health care for our Reproductive Health Care and Advocacy Fellowship. We are so thrilled to welcome these six clinicians to our vibrant, diverse community of clinical leaders and change-makers. Take some time to get to know our 2021-2022 cohort!

 

Chelsea Faso (she/her) is an Afro-Latina family physician from NYC who finished her Family Medicine Residency program at Montefiore in the Bronx. She spent most of her life in NY/NYC but has spent time solo traveling/volunteering in Peru and Guatemala. She and her partner are looking to grow their family with a fur baby in the next upcoming months. Besides Reproductive Justice, she has a strong interest in Immigrant Justice as well. She loves traveling, hiking, cooking, reading, and taking care of her many plants! She’ll be completing fellowship in New York. 

 

Deyang Nyandak (she/her, pronounced “They-young”) was born in India and moved with her family to New Jersey while in high school. She went straight through to medical school and has now finished family medicine residency at Cambridge Health Alliance in MA where she is now completing fellowship. 

 

Hannah Rosenfield (she/her) grew up outside of Boston before heading to Maine for college. She spent a few years traveling/hiking, volunteering, and working prior to medical school (the best bit in Chile and Peru). She was drawn back to Portland, ME for residency and is excited to explore Michigan in fellowship! She lives with her partner and spends a lot of free time exploring the outdoors with their pup Noomi. She loves to travel, hike, read, and try new foods/wine. Like most people in family medicine, she has many passions. In addition to reproductive health, she also has a strong interest in immigrant justice and global health, as well as mental health/addiction.

Her medical school attendings inspired her to pursue women’s health through family medicine. She gained extensive experience in women’s health and family planning during her residency and decided to pursue fellowship in NJ to bolster her procedural skills. After fellowship, she is interested in providing abortion care and complex contraception in provider-shortage areas. She is passionate about the integration of women’s health into primary care, as well as teaching and advocacy. Outside of medicine, she enjoys comedy and documentaries, experimenting with ingredients in the kitchen, accruing houseplants, and traveling internationally.
