Latasha Naidu, MD, board certified in Internal Medicine and Infectious Disease, has joined Conemaugh Physician Group and is now seeing inpatients at Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center.

Dr. Naidu is a graduate of the College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio, and received a Master of Science from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. She then earned her Doctor of Medicine from Saba University School of Medicine in Saba, Netherlands-Antilles.
