Sharde Chambers has dedicated her life to working with underserved populations and is committed to community involvement via service and mentorship. As a domestic violence survivor, Sharde has always desired to mentor people who experience physical and emotional pain. Her personal mission is to serve as a physician-advocate for disenfranchised populations globally, ensuring that patient care is individualized, comprehensive, and preventive.
Sharde graduated from the University of Miami in 2009 with a major in Biology. She worked for three years as the Volunteer Coordinator of the Miami Rescue Mission focusing on service opportunities to curb the issue of homelessness. At Rowan, she developed the Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Action (I.D.E.A.) Council, orchestrated the first and second annual Diversity Week, and served as Vice President and Regional Liaison of her local chapter of Student National Medical Association (SNMA). She operated as Vice Chair of the Conference Planning Committee for the 2015 and 2016 SNMA Region IX Medical Education Conference where attendees convened on the topic “Black Lives Matter – Social, Cultural, and Health Equity and Competence,” and “Embodying Black Excellence: Scholarship, Service, and Self-Care,” respectively.
Sharde is excited to continue to pursue her passions as a Med/Peds resident at UM/JMH and learn more about the practice of medicine in resource poor environments. When she’s not out trying to save the world, you can find Sharde trying out a new restaurant recommended by Yelp, catching up on the latest movies or TV series, going to church, singing/listening to music, living as a beach bum, and/or simply spending time with her friends and family.
