About Me


My name is Apurva and I’m a family medicine physician in little old Youngstown, Ohio. I work with a residency program in town and see patients in an office. I am a big promoter of preventative medicine, exercise, and fitness. This blog is born of: a sudden influx in time after medical school/residency, the need for a creative outlet, and a desire to share medical and non-medical things that I believe can increase health and happiness! There’s so much negativity in the world, I just needed to create a space to share optimism and fun.

More about me? I’m a wife, daughter, sister, friend, puppy mom, and physician. In addition to medicine, I love Cleveland sports (usually tragically so), movies, Star Wars, reading, learning EASY healthy recipes, organization, trading stocks, travel, online shopping, and binge watching TV shows. With interests as varied as those, I don’t really know the direction this blog will take, but I’m excited to see.
