Primary Care Residents 2020 - 2021


Kathryn Huber, MD, MS is a first year resident in the primary carHuber Ke track. A life-long state hopscotcher, she grew up in the great country of Texas, completed undergrad at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio where she studied the illustrious field of comparative literature (and some chemistry). She then completed a Master’s of Science in Bioethics at Columbia University in New York City, before pursuing medicine at the University of Arizona in Tucson. Somewhere along the way she found a love for working with elderly, chronically ill and underserved populations, and she feels profoundly lucky to have the chance to pursue a career in geriatrics through the Primary Care track based out of the Denver Health network. A former college athlete turned hiker turned 14er sufferer, she enjoys spending much of her free time outdoors and petting any dogs and all that happen to cross her path.

Johnson_ThomasThomas Johnson, MD is a third-year resident in the primary care track. He received his undergraduate degree from Baylor University and went to medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch. Growing up in Moorpark, California and moving out to Texas for college, he was excited to try something new and move to Denver with his wife, a psychiatry resident, and two dogs. The primary care program at CU excited him with the unmatched elective opportunities and four hospital system. His ultimate goal is to work in academic general medicine, so a program that is well-rounded in both inpatient and outpatient medicine was vital to his residency decision. When college football is out of season, he can be found hiking, reading, or exploring the craft beer scene in Denver.


Melton_Meara Meara Melton, MD, MBA is a Chief Resident in the primary care track. A Colorado native, she attended the University of Denver to study Biochemistry and pursue an MBA prior to medical school at the University of Colorado. With a passion for communication and patient- and family-centered care, she hopes to ultimately practice Geriatric Medicine. She was attracted to the primary care track for its sense of community, access to excellent primary care physicians, and ability to individualize her training with electives and more clinic exposure to Geriatrics. She also could not imagine leaving Colorado, where she enjoys exploring the restaurant scene and beautiful hikes with her husband and dog!
