ABOUT DR. KELA HENRY

Dr. Kela Henry is a respected primary care physician at Emory Gwinnett Family Physicians in Suwanee, Georgia since 2003. She is a member of the American Academy of Family Practice and the National Medical Association.

Dr. Henry graduated medical school from the Medical College of Pennsylvania-Hahnemann School of Medicine (now Drexel) in 1999 prior to returning to her home state of Georgia and completing her residency program at Medical College of Georgia in Augusta. While in medical school she earned two prestigious awards. The first was the Keystone State Medical Society Award, a component of the National Medical Association and Pennsylvania Medical Society for the state’s physicians and physicians in training. The second distinguished award was the Outstanding Young Women of America Award which is sponsored by leading women’s organizations throughout the country, honoring young women between the ages of 21 and 35 who give their time and efforts to the betterment of community, country, and profession.

Aside from running her successful private practice, Dr. Henry is passionate about the health of adolescent girls and believes in giving back to organizations which focus on the education and empowerment of this demographic. She enjoys teaching and speaking with girls about navigating the post secondary education process and health issues like obesity and depression. She is also committed to helping young ladies to better understand the many consequences both physically and emotionally of consensual sexual activity.

These are all concerns faced by the young ladies and parents of today. Many of the young ladies Dr. Henry addresses have the potential to become our women leaders of tomorrow. Dr. Henry feels that when teenage girls have access to useful information and positive role models, they can accomplish anything. She supports empowering them to fully understand the life-long value of being self-sufficient and independent as they mature and go through various stages of their lives.

Dr. Henry is also an avid shoe collector.

Sample of the organizations Dr. Henry has recently collaborated with in the Atlanta area: Atlanta Glow, A Kids Dream, Inc., Diamond in the Rough, Friendship Baptist Church.
