She graduated from Northwestern University Medical School and completed her residency at the University of Illinois, Chicago, where she served as Chief Resident and Assistant Residency Director. She has served on the faculty of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Family Practice Residency Program and founded her own medical practice in 2007.
Dr. Loya meets with patients at the PreDiabetes Center of Pittsburgh at 2541 East Carson Street.
"Pittsburgh Living" airs quarterly from 9:00-10a.m. on KDKA-TV, channel 2, a CBS-owned regional news channel.
