Damali Campbell, MD

Dr. Damali Campbell is an OB/GYN at University Hospital and Associate Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Health at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. She is dedicated to improving women’s healthcare in underserved areas and broadening women’s health education. She has spearheaded several programs that are focused on women’s community health including improving pregnancy nutrition at UH and implementing Centering Pregnancy: a pre-natal care group. She is constantly amazed at the level of connections made in group care and how it shows we are all connected and have more similarities than differences.

Dr. Campbell’s advocacy expands beyond University Hospital. Since 2007, she has been a committee member of the NJ Maternal Mortality Review Committee, a volunteer multidisciplinary peer-review group that investigates deaths within 365 days of a pregnancy regardless of location. Dr. Campbell also participated in NJ First Lady Tammy Murphy’s maternal health initiative, Nurture New Jersey Summit, and spoke at the US Surgeon General’s listening tour on maternal mortality.

“I wake up most mornings thinking: what new ideas and projects can I bring to the people I serve? I feel blessed to work in a place where they embrace, support, and add to the ideas and innovation that swirl around in my head. I am most proud when a patient expresses gratitude for the time I took to explain something or the time I took to listen to them.”

Doctors’ Day is an important time to recognize doctors improving healthcare, and we are proud to highlight Dr. Damali Campbell’s incredible devotion to her patients.
