Audrey Hall MD

Dr. Audrey Hall is in her final year of pediatric residency training at Stanford University. Following completion of training, she plans to practice as a general pediatrician.

Audrey grew up in rural Illinois and moved to California for residency training. She has enjoyed experiencing all the things Northern California has to offer, and loves hiking, visiting the farmers market, trying new restaurants and food trucks, shopping estate sales, and visiting wine country. Conversations with Audrey often drift toward her family in Illinois, including tales of her nephews' latest quips and antics, and what is new on her family's farm, a commercial apple orchard.

Audrey has enjoyed writing since she was a child, and she hopes to infuse writing and advocacy into her career as a pediatrician.
