Born and raised in Atlanta, joining Mercer gave him a chance to come home.

Dr. Ware works with patients at the Grady Health System on their transition of care. “I want to make sure they know and understand their medications between getting discharged and seeing their doctor,” says Dr. Ware. “Sometimes patients are confused about their medication, so I try to ensure there’s no drop-off.”

Community engagement is close to Dr. Ware’s heart. He works with the Georgia Diabetes Coalition and the South Carolina HIV Planning Council, among others. He wants to develop partnerships with community-based organizations and get more students involved throughout the year.

You may see him running around campus in his free time or working on his tennis game. With two children, Dr. Ware and his wife keep busy, but he likes to relax with a good murder mystery.

Dr. Ware’s pick for something to do in Atlanta? “I feel like you have to go to The Varsity, right? Hearing ‘Whaddaya have,’ getting a frozen orange and a slaw dog – you have to experience it at least once.”
