Dr. Joseph Cook was born in Edgewood, Kentucky and raised in Jackson, Mississippi. He obtained his Bachelor of Arts in biochemistry from the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) and his Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Mississippi School of Medicine. During medical school he served as a volunteer with an inner-city ministry, worked at the Jackson Free Clinic, and conducted research in obesity physiology and post-operative outcomes for African-Americans compared to white Americans.
As a volunteer on several medical and church mission trips, Dr. Cook discovered his passion for serving underserved populations, developing relationships with his patients, and practicing primary care, thus leading him to pursue a career in Family Medicine. He is excited to join the team at Halifax Health Center as they share the common goal of providing the highest level of healthcare to every patient.
His professional interests include health disparities, longevity health, and sports medicine. Outside of medicine, he enjoys various outdoor activities, exercise, painting, and spending time with his family, friends and fiancée.
