Assistant Professor of Medicine, Clinician Educator


Dr. Nevins-Herbert received her BA at Connecticut College in Neuroscience/Psychobiology. She then earned her MD at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. She fell in love with Rhode Island during her family medicine residency through Brown University at Memorial Hospital of RI followed by a hospice and palliative medicine fellowship at Jamaica Hospital in Queens, NY. She returned to RI and has been working at Hope Health ever since as a hospice and palliative care physician. Currently, she works at the Philip Hulitar Inpatient Hospice Center and recently traded in some of her palliative care responsibilities to return to her primary care roots working a few afternoons per week at Thundermist Health Center in Woonsocket, RI. Her love of teaching has lead her to become part of the Geriatrics and Palliative Care faculty as well as an instructor in the Doctoring course for first year students at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and the 8 hour live CME conference "Complex Care Conversations: Building a Community of Healing." She can almost always be seen with a learner shadowing her and is known for her role as the "difficult patient" in role plays for the fellows.
