Dr. Nierenberg graduated from undergraduate at Georgetown and went on to get her MD and MPH in International Medicine from the Tulane University School of Medicine and the Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine respectively. While in undergraduate, Dr. Nierenberg started working in developing countries with Project Medishare and Partners in Health and took her first trip to Haiti. This trip became the first of nearly two dozen trips to Haiti so far. On the first trip, Dr. Nierenberg helped set up mobile clinics in remote areas and assisted in training local practitioners to run the clinics. She continued these visits as a medical student, intern, resident and attending physician and has trained many students and residents to continue to the operations. Now, Dr. Nierenberg provides continuing education online and in person for local practitioners in Haiti to enhance sustainability and decrease reliance on volunteer missions.
As an attending physician at Tufts Medical Center, Dr. Nierenberg specializes in transplant infectious disease, the management of device related infections, and is also a wound care specialist in the Center for Vascular Medicine, Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine. In the fall, she will assume the position of Medical Direction for Inpatient Wound Care.
