If you are having right calf and right ankle swelling in addition to chest discomfort, I am strongly advising you to go to an Emergency Room immediately. These symptoms are signs of DVT and Pulmonary Embolus. Right calf pain and tenderness could indicate a blood clot in the deep vein of the lower extremity. The clot in the lower leg can travel to the lung causing a pulmonary embolus. Symptoms of a Pulmonary Embolus can include difficulty breathing, chest discomfort or coughing up blood. This needs to be evaluated immediately in the Emergency Room. READ MORE

Born in Memphis, Tennessee, Dr. Taylor-Moragne attended the historic Memphis Central High School. After high school, she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree at the historic Fisk University. During her time at Fisk, she participated in the Summer Research Program at Meharry Medical College, which sparked her interest in the field of science and medicine.

Her desire to serve an underrepresented population did not stop in Chicago.
