Beverly Tchang, MD

Ro Obesity Medicine Advisor

Beverly Tchang, MD, is an Obesity Medicine Advisor for Ro. She is an assistant professor of Clinical Medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York and triple board-certified in Internal Medicine, Endocrinology, and Obesity Medicine. She graduated from SUNY Downstate Medical College and completed her residency and fellowship training at New York Presbyterian Weill Cornell and Columbia University Medical Center. Like many residents working long hours, Dr. Tchang found herself frequently thinking about food and realized she didn’t know about the scientific basis of “healthy” food. It was discomforting to be a doctor yet unable to guide patients on something as basic and essential as food choices. So, she set off to change that upon completing her training. 

Passionate about education, she is the program director of Cornell’s Obesity Medicine fellowship and co-founded the non-profit organization, Tri-State Obesity Society. Dr. Tchang serves in several national organizations, including the Veterans Affairs, American Board of Obesity Medicine, and The Obesity Society. Her research interests include obesity pharmacotherapy, education, and telemedicine. 

Dr. Tchang lives in New York City with her partner, son, and two cats and enjoys video games and functional art (the latest being kintsugi). You can find Dr. Tchang @BevTchangMD on X or check out her website for more information.
