Dr. Margaret Daniels Allard named director of adult and family medicine at Whittier Street Health Center

Dr. Margaret “Maggie” Allard was recently promoted to director of adult and family medicine at the Whittier Street Health Center in Roxbury.

Allard was born in Kerala, India, and immigrated to the United States at the age of two. She is a graduate of the University of Colorado School of Medicine in 1999 and Harvard University School of Public Health in 2006. Allard performed her residency at Montefiore Medical Center located in New York and joined Whittier in 2012. Prior to joining Whittier, she was on the medical staff at the Lowell Community Health Center from January 2008 to February 2011, and has been the medical director at the City of Nashua Division of Public Health and Community Services since January 2009.

In her new role as the director of adult and family medicine, she will work with the Whittier Patient Centered Medical Home team to ensure all adult and geriatric patients served have access to high quality, and culturally appropriate care. She will also lead the implementation of Whittier’s Health Equity Plan, which is designed to track efforts in reducing the racial and ethnic disparities in health care, increase access and address the high rates of mortality and morbidity rates in minority and underserved communities served by Whittier.

Allard’s clinical interests are public health, women’s health, HIV, hepatitis C and diabetes.
