A native of Savannah, GA, Dr. Eugene obtained his undergraduate degree from Hampton University in Cellular and Molecular Biology and earned his Doctorate of Medicine at Morehouse School of Medicine. He completed pediatric residency training at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh, PA where he was in the Pediatric Advocacy Leadership Service (PALS) Primary Care track. He chose to specialize in adolescent medicine to guide and support the health and wellness of adolescents. He finds adolescent development fascinating and sees adolescence as a key time of transition that offers a unique opportunity for physicians to guide teens in establishing healthy decision making and developing healthy emotional and physical health that foster wellness in adulthood. Through research, he plans to explore the role identity plays in health behaviors and emotional well-being of black male adolescents and emerging adults. His career vision is to realize a better world for young black men through fostering healthy identity development, promoting emotional well-being, and empowering young black men to secure optimal physical and mental health.
