Dr. Anna Persmark (she/her) hails mostly from Eugene, Oregon, but has roots in the southern United States and southern Sweden. During her undergraduate studies, she first developed a passion for qualitative research, public health and approaching health through a social justice lens. After college, she spent a year in Washington, D.C., providing bilingual HIV testing and counseling at a Latinx LGBTQ+ community center. During that year, she became certain that community health was where she belonged. In medical school she was involved in the Family Medicine Interest Group and the Queer Health Alliance, and found ways to participate in health equity movements through research and community engagement. She ultimately found her home in family medicine, appreciating the history of a “counterculture” specialty and a philosophy that centers individual experience within family, community and structural contexts.
Dr. Persmark’s clinical and academic interests include sexual and reproductive health, LGBTQ+ care, community organizing and health equity. Outside of medicine, Anna enjoys roller derby, banjo and getting lost in speculative fiction books.
