Morgan grew up in St. Louis and will always be a Cardinals fan. He attended Wheaton College, where he studied the liberal arts and ecology, though he spent most of his time rock climbing and camping. As a student, he worked in rural community health in the Peruvian selva through a holistic community development program. Seeking a new adventure, he and his wife moved to Boston where Morgan worked in air pollution epidemiology. He became increasingly involved in his neighborhood and knew that he needed to join his passion for public health with the intimacy of clinical care. The MD/MPH program at Tufts was the perfect fit. There, he was an Albert Schweitzer Fellow and led an English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) program in his neighborhood. He also had the opportunity to return to Peru and live in community with like-minded mentors. Along the way he became passionate about correctional medicine, substance use, harm reduction, and local public health. He was excited to combine these interests in his MPH thesis, which involved a multi-agency public health investigation of the recent outbreak of opioid overdoses in Massachusetts. He is inspired to be training at Lawrence, a place that truly values solidarity, humility, and equity while caring for families with the comprehensive rigor made possible by full-spectrum family medicine. Morgan loves to run, backpack, play with his cat, listen to music, and chill with his wife and friends.
