Meet Dr. Aletha

I am Dr. Aletha, or sometimes called Dr. O.

I practice family medicine and write this health blog.

a woman, Dr. Aletha Oglesby

How I learn and work

I graduated from the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine and  Family Medicine residency  and  am board certified in Family Medicine.

I have worked in a variety of settings-family practice clinic, hospital, emergency and urgent care clinics, nursing homes, rural and city.

How I play

Besides exploring health, I like to explore the world.

With our young sons, my husband and I took yearly summer vacations – to theme parks, national parks, historic sites, and winter snow ski trips.  They are adults now but we still get to enjoy occasional trips with them, including a trip to Disney World with our two grandchildren.

When they left home, my husband and I traded in our skis for ballroom dance shoes, took lessons, and now dance socially and in competitions.

How I help

We also donate time to worthy causes involving computer technology and medicine in numerous countries-VietNam, Mexico, Ecuador, Argentina, Paraguay, Panamá, Zanzibar, to name a few. We enjoy meeting, working with and learning from people in other cultures; we gain as much as we give.

We volunteer at our church and  support fund raisers for local charities.

My husband Raymond served our country in the U.S. Army . To support other veterans we belong to The American Legion and The American Legion Auxiliary.

As a member of my local DAR, Daughters of the American Revolution, chapter, I am  passionate about community service, preserving history, educating children,literacy, conservation, and honoring and supporting our military service members.
