Colorado doctors, feeling alone and anxious, look to strangers for support in the fight against COVID-19

As we pause to reflect on the life and legacy of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., we are reminded of a question he often posed in his speeches: “What are you doing for others?”

Dr. Sneha Shah has dedicated her life to others, a commitment especially exhibited this past year.

Shah, an immigrant from India, says she always found comfort in math and science. But only when she moved to the United States as a teenager with her family and later attended Marquette University in Wisconsin did her love for healthcare emerge.

“Becoming a physician felt really right. My focus can be on my patients, and I can channel my energy into helping those that need it,” Shah said.
