Dr. Gregg grew up in Fort Worth, Texas and received her MD at Vanderbilt University. She completed her internship and residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Washington and then returned home to Texas for fellowship in Nephrology at the University of Texas Southwestern. During her fellowship, her interest in identifying non-traditional cardiovascular risk factors in patients with chronic kidney disease blossomed, which is now the primary focus of her research.
