Fellows Above L to R: Internists Andy Marshall, Lisa Willett, Rebekah Weil, Ben Taylor, and Raegan Durant 

An exciting collaboration between Cooper Green Mercy Health Services and the Tinsley Harrison Internal Medicine Residency Program now provides residents the opportunity to provide primary care to underserved populations. Drs. Raegan Durant and Lisa Willett recognized the opportunity to marry the need for clinical care with ambulatory training and enlisted three internists — Drs. Andy Marshall, Rebekah Weil, and Ben Taylor — to be the attending physicians for a new clinic at Cooper Green. Residents now see patients enrolled in the primary care clinic at Cooper Green for their acute issues and intermittent needs related to chronic disease.
