Suzanne Barakat      

Family medicine resident at San Francisco General Hospital

Suzanne was born and raised in North Carolina, and attended UNC Chapel Hill for both undergrad and medical school. During medical school, she spent a year at UCSF-SFGH researching gestational diabetes and postpartum mental health outcomes in low-income Latina women.

While at UCSF, she also translated an online mood screener into Arabic, the results of which contributed to a first-of-its-kind mental health assessment of Arabic-speaking communities worldwide. She later spent time on the Turkish-Syrian border, working at a makeshift polyclinic serving 20,000 refugees displaced by the ongoing conflict in Syria. She is passionate about women’s health, mental health, global health, and social justice. What drives her most is the privilege to connect with people in a manner unique to medicine, being reminded through her interactions that every person has a story – and no story is small. In her free time, she enjoys hiking the breathtaking trails that dot the Bay, honing her interest in photography, and spending quality time with her husband.

Sister of Deah Shaddy Barakat, Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha, and Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha who were killed in their home in Finley Forest Condominiums on Summerwalk Circle in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, United States in February 2015.
