About Dr. Chi
Dr. Chinyere Okpaleke, better known as Dr. Chi, is a unique family medicine physician who wears different hats outside of practicing medicine! She played undergraduate basketball at the University of South Florida while majoring in biomedical sciences. She went on to complete her Masters Degree from USF in Medical Sciences, then the journey of med school began at Ross University School of Medicine.
Throughout her medical training, she valued patient care but always felt there was more that she could offer...
Dr. Chi founded Reality Speaks, Inc, a 501c3 non-profit organization, dedicated to help student-athletes succeed after sports by mentorship, volunteering, and offering workshops. During this process, she has expanded her organization to be community focused; giving back to the people who need it the most. And currently her non-profit organizes annual clothing drives & Christmas toy drives, serve food to foster kids and the homeless community, and offers college scholarships.
Even throughout this service, Dr. Chi also finds time to teach free yoga to her diverse community and promote health and self-love.
She completed her residency training at the University of South Florida and currently works full-time as a hospitalist. She is on a journey to make medicine more interactive and accessible for all individuals; spreading health knowledge as a right to know and understand. Serving like Christ and philanthropy are the reasons her heart smiles and the reasons her passion glows.
