Dr. Dara Arons loves taking care of whole families in the Community Health Center setting. She is particularly interested in women’s health as well as prevention for all, including lifestyle choices that lead to positive and enduring change. Dara graduated from the Yale School of Medicine in 2006 and was awarded the Connecticut Academy of Family Physicians Honor and the Janet M. Glasgow Memorial Achievement Citation. She completed her residency in Family Medicine at Boston Medical Center in 2009, where she saw patients at South Boston Community Health Center. After residency she cared for families in a Community Health Center in Somerville for 6 years including pregnant women whose births she attended at Cambridge Hospital. During this time, she taught Tufts medical students and family medicine residents in the classroom, clinic and hospital. She then spent a year in a very rural and remote part of the South Island of New Zealand, caring for patients in a small community health center, emergency room and hospital and learning to surf. She joined the CRCHC team in Brighton in September 2017. When she is not working, Dara loves being with her three daughters and husband and in her spare time she enjoys cooking, knitting, playing the cello and hiking. She speaks Spanish, French and a very small amount of Hebrew.
