"Aurora Leon MD was born in Mexico City and was raised in northern Mexico. She studied Medical School and at the end she offered one year of “social service” to an underserved community, where she was the primary care physician for a community of 2,500 people. After seeing that health also depends on social and family interaction, she studied 2 years of her master degree in Systemic Family Therapy. In 2009 she came to New York City to continue her career in Internal Medicine at St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital with Columbia University. She spent 5 years in a Federal Qualified Clinic “Generations Family Health Center” offering service to the underserved population in Connecticut.
She has always been interested in an integrative approach. One of her main beliefs is that food can be the best medicine. She is a board member of PCRM (Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine). Dr. Leon is a yoga enthusiast, loves running and she runs ultra marathons. She has a deep appreciation for life and death, practicing mindfulness.
In 2019 she was part of the “Nomads Clinic”, a four week medical expedition in Nepal, where a group of doctors hiked to most remote regions of the Himalayas to give compassionate medical care to more than 1330 nomads.
She is here eager to start working with the people of the Cheshire region. Her aspiration is to keep growing and learning in relationship with who she is serving."
