TULSA, Okla. – The story of Elizabeth Harris, D.O., an OG/BYN, and her husband Brian Harris, D.O., an anesthesiologist, was featured recently by the Cherokee Nation. The two physicians met as students in chemistry lab, married and attended OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine together. Now they work at the Cherokee Nation W.W. Hastings Hospital in Tahlequah. Elizabeth Harris, from Vian, is a new ob/gyn at the hospital and Brian, of Westville, is the new anesthesiologist.

The couple graduated from OSU-COM in 2005 and completed their residencies at OSU Medical Center in 2010.
