About The Author

Dr. Darnita Hill, DO

Darnita Anderson Hill, DO, was born into an osteopathic family, as one would say. She was born in the early 1960s in a small Georgia clinic where her mother birthed her with the assistance of one of the first black osteopathic physicians in the country. She is the daughter of Dr. William Anderson, the first African American president of the American Osteopathic Association, and by faith, Darnita got married to a DO. Her interest in becoming a doctor sparked from being inspired by her father.
