Meet Jennifer Unger, M.D., M.P.H., Gynecology & Maternity Care Provider | UW Medicine


JENNIFER UNGER: Just
recently, I had the privilege of working with a
patient that I’ve worked with over the last 15 years. So even in my training– I first met this woman
while I was still a trainee here at the
University of Washington and took care of
her as an adolescent and really focused on
adolescent gynecologic care. And then, I had the real
privilege of taking care of her during her pregnancy
and being there at the birth of her child. And recently when she
had a gynecologic issue, I was able to take care of
that, and take her to surgery, and see her get better. So I’ve been a part of this
woman’s life for over 10 years and been able to care for
her in many different aspects of her life. And that’s been a real
privilege and really an honor to have her
as part of my practice and part of my life. Throughout my training
and after I graduated, I really felt a commitment
to global women’s health because I’ve seen, personally
and professionally, what health care affords to women
both in high-income countries and low-income countries. So I really wanted to be part
of both taking care of women and working with women
directly with their health, but also to be part of
finding interesting solutions and innovative solutions to
global women’s health problems, where women are really
affected by the fact that they are women,
and their gender really affects their health.
