Selvi Rajagopal, MD, MPH is dual-board certified in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics and a diplomat of the American Board of Obesity Medicine. She specializes in medical weight management to prevent and treat chronic disease beginning in late adolescence through adulthood. In her clinical practice at the Johns Hopkins Healthful Eating, Activity and Weight Program, she works with individuals to implement a holistic approach to achieve their health goals through sustainable weight loss and weight maintenance, incorporating key elements of nutrition, exercise, mental health and medication management.

Beyond her clinical role, Dr. Rajagopal is engaged in medical student and resident education within Obesity Medicine. Her research and public health interests include the improvement of health and nutrition literacy and food environment policy reform as strategies to reduce chronic disease burden among low-income populations across the age spectrum.

Dr. Rajagopal received her Doctor of Medicine degree from George Washington University School of Medicine in Washington, DC. She completed a combined training in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas.
