Dr. Chida also partners with Jane McKenzie-White to develop educational content and online courses for health providers.   

After completing her undergraduate education in English and psychology at the University of Florida, Dr. Chida received her medical degree from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. She pursued residency training in internal medicine at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital, after which she served as a Chief Medical Resident.
