Having grown up in a poor black community in Philadelphia, she set out on a career to bring better health conditions to poor urban communities. Dr. Fields was awarded a National Public Health Service Corps medical scholarship and attended Bryn Mawr College and the Medical College of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. She completed her residency in Internal Medicine at the Hospital of the Medical College of Pennsylvania in 1985, and became Board Certified in Internal Medicine the same year. During medical school she worked on the West Side of Chicago at a neighborhood health center where she initiated a hypertension screening program. As a physician she would go on to practice at the same community health center.
Dr. Fields moved to New York City in 1991, initially working as a primary care physician for the Health Insurance Plan of New York in Brooklyn and then for the 32-BJ Union Health Center in Manhattan. In 1994 she became affiliated with North General Hospital in Harlem and remained on the voluntary staff there until the hospital closed in 2010.
Dr. Fields has received numerous awards for her work in community health and education including the CKD/ESRD Community Service and Patient Education Award on October 15, 2014. In 2013 Dr. Fields was honored with the Joel Press Award by The All Stars Project for helping young people to grow and learn about careers in medicine.
As a doctor and community health advocate Dr. Fields is a frequent speaker at community health workshops on medical conditions such as Diabetes, Hypertension, and Asthma.
