About this Event

Come with a sack lunch and great questions, and prepare to have an honest and engaging conversation about what it means to serve in public office.

Dr. Akilah Weber was elected to the La Mesa City Council in 2018.

A native San Diegan, she graduated from Gompers Secondary School. By the age of 26, Dr. Weber had received her bachelor and medical degrees, from Xavier University of Louisiana and The University of Rochester Medical School. She completed her residency in Obstetrics & Gynecology at Chicago Cook County Hospital and a fellowship in Pediatric & Adolescent Gynecology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. Currently she is the Director of Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology Division at Rady’s Children’s Hospital in San Diego, and an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Sciences at UCSD.

Dr. Weber is very passionate about using her skills and resources to positively impact her community. She has served on the boards of La Mesa Conversations and the La Mesa-Foothills Democratic Club. Dr. Weber serves as a role model to young people and seeks to expose them to careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). She volunteers as the science coordinator for the award winning Links to STEM program for kids who are underrepresented in those fields. Additionally, she gives talks to teens at churches and conferences on the importance of making healthy choices. Dr. Weber is an active member of several civic organizations making a difference in the lives of families in San Diego County.
