Dr. Prada’s growing up years were spent in Bogota, Colombia where
he attended a British School. He is a native Spanish speaker and also
speaks English fluently. He graduated from Lynn University in Boca Raton,
FL with a BS in Biology in May, 2007. He attended American University
of Antigua College of Medicine in Antigua and Barbuda in 2014. Post graduate
training took place at Wellstar Atlanta Medical Center Family Medicine
Residency in Atlanta, GA in June, 2018. He was chief resident there.
Even before entering medical school, Dr. Prada knew he wanted to care for
underserved populations as well as undocumented people who face a lot
of hardships in their daily lives. He also thought he wanted to concentrate
his energies working with pediatrics. However, he added obstetrics to
his wish list after he saw how much he enjoyed working with families.
Several family medicine conferences in 2016 and 2017 only strengthened
his resolve to concentrate on this type of medicine.
Dr. Prada had specific criteria in mind as he began his search for a clinic
setting. “A lot of organizations have good intentions but not the
leadership to provide the right kinds of support and tools for medical
providers to do the job,” he said. “I found that CBHA, with
its amazing facilities and equipment, will be able to provide whatever
I need to take really good care of my patients.”
When not at work, Dr. Prada wants to be outdoors. “I love to spend
time with my dog “Diego” (Black Lab). He also can’t
wait for winter to go downhill skiing and plans to take up cross country
skiing. He likes biking and will buy one soon. “I arrived in Othello
in time to participate in CBHA’s “Color Run” the end
of September.” Volunteering rounds out the things he likes to do
in his spare time.
