Angela Bangs, MDHIV & Viral Hepatitis Fellow 2023-2024
Dr. Angela Bangs was born in Texas and led a nomadic life throughout her childhood. She completed her undergraduate studies in public health at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Go Heels!) with a desire to serve vulnerable populations. After working for several years in Raleigh, North Carolina on behalf of the NC Medicaid program, she married her high school sweetheart and moved to her husband’s hometown of Bozeman, Montana to work at the MT Office of Rural Health/AHEC. Her travels throughout rural Montana and her work with the state’s critical access hospitals led her to complete a post-baccalaureate pre-medical program with the intention of becoming a rural, primary care physician. She attended the University of Washington’s Montana WWAMI program as a TRUST scholar given her interest in rural and underserved populations.
She loved receiving strong, full-spectrum family medicine training at Full Circle Health; she loved it so much that she served as a chief resident for the program.
She is thrilled to continue her training at Full Circle Health in HIV/Viral Hepatitis and hopes to bring her skills to a rural/underserved area in the Mountain West. Her professional interests are in full-spectrum family medicine including non-surgical obstetrics, behavioral health, reproductive health, and advocacy.
Dr. Bangs and her husband Tyler love the outdoors and exploring the Boise area. They spend their free time hiking, biking, trail running (slow jogging in Angela’s case), swimming, paddle boarding, skiing, discovering and experimenting with new recipes, and attempting to keep all their plants alive.
