About the Event

About Dr. Tello

I’m a lot of things, but mostly I’m an internal medicine physician, medical communicator, writer, and mother based in Boston, Massachusetts.

I graduated from medical school over twenty years ago. I survived residency, rejuvenated during fellowship, and then persevered as a busy clinician/ instructor/ researcher at a major academic medical center for thirteen years. I recently shifted into medical communications/ medical affairs at an immuno-oncology biotechnology firm, and every day feels full and fulfilling.

My writing has encompassed my many passions. As a medical resident at Yale/ New Haven Hospital, I participated in the first and second Yale Internal Medicine Writer's Workshops under Abraham Verghese, Richard Seltzer, and Anna Reisman; I then contributed two ‘darkly reflective’ chapters about my training experience to a compilation titled The Real Life of an Internist (Kaplan 2009). For a long time, I wrote about balancing being a mother and a doctor, blogging at the group blog Mothers In Medicine and contributing to the Mothers in Medicine book (Springer 2018). Inspired by my own physical transformation, I became a regular contributor at the Harvard Health Blog covering mostly nutrition, fitness, and self-care; I then became board-certified in Lifestyle Medicine, and co-founded/ co-directed our hospital’s Healthy Lifestyle Program. My diet and lifestyle change guide Healthy Habits for Your Heart (Adams Media/ Simon and Schuster) was published in December 2018. Along the way, I’ve also covered myriad medical, public health, and social issues, always with a sound science-based approach. I’ve written for Scientific AmericanDoximity OpMed, the New England Journal of Medicine Knowledge+ Blog Kevin, MD, and more.........

Personally, I am half Latina, I speak Spanish and maintain a close relationship with our extended family in Guatemala. I’ve been married to local sports broadcaster Bob Socci since 2008, and we have two school-aged children, as well as two cats, a dog, and a snake.
