THE HEALTH HIVE
FOUNDER & MEDICAL DIRECTOR,
DR. AJA MURPHY
Aja Murphy, D.O. is a board certified Family Medicine physician. Dr. Murphy was born and raised in Chicago, IL. She received a bachelor’s degree in biology at Hampton University. Subsequently, she earned a master’s degree in biomedical sciences at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. While she was in pursuit of a Masters Degree, she was exposed to the osteopathic principles and holistic medicine. As such, she learned to see each person as a unit of body, mind and spirit, treating the person as opposed to the disease. She opted to become an osteopathic physician to pursue a medical career with a patient centered approach to medicine and preventative health. Ultimately, she graduated from Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine, with honors.
Dr. Murphy completed her training in Family Medicine and worked in a clinical setting for several years. She could not help but notice the nutritional deficiencies of her patient’s and the upward trend in the obesity epidemic. This observation prompted her to leave traditional medicine to focus on the nutritional foundation of her patient’s. She is committed to developing individualized, patient centered care, while reviving one’s health.
