Only 5% of doctors are Black, even fewer are black females, and even fewer are black females with a specialization in Neurology. On this #WhiteCoatWenesday we would like to honor, Dr. Jessica Baity, the knowledgable neurologist from Louisana.
Dr. Jessica Baity is a Board Certified Neurologist serving patients in Southeast Louisiana.
She diagnoses and treats a variety of neurological conditions including epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, migraine, neuromuscular disorders, movement disorders, and stroke.
She graduated from LSU New Orleans School of Medicine where she also did her Internal Medicine Internship and her Neurology Residency.
A native of New Orleans, Dr. Baity completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, FL where she studied International Relations and History.
She attended American University in Washington, DC earning a master’s degree in International Relations with a focus on Latin America.
Prior to medical school Dr. Baity worked in the international education field and was the owner of a small business focused on foreign language education and translation.
Today, she works in the hospital and clinic setting in a rural hospital in south Louisiana an hour south of New Orleans. When she is not working she is mom to a very fun 2-year-old and a very lively 5-year-old who keeps her very busy.
