I am excited to be a member of the Parents Review Board. It can be difficult deciding where to get factual online health information, so I am happy to contribute my expertise in women’s health. I strive to gain the trust of my patients by treating them as I would family, educating them on their reproductive health, and empowering them to advocate for themselves.


Dr. Odunsi received her Bachelor of Science in human biology, health, and society from Cornell University and completed her Master of Public Health at Thomas Jefferson University. She earned her Doctorate of Medicine from Meharry Medical College and completed her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Danbury Hospital.
