Dr. Janine Darby, M.D.

Candidate for Montgomery County Coroner

I am a Lower Providence Township resident, a Board-Certified Obesity and Family Physician, and a small business owner with a practice focused on preventative medicine. I am also the wife of my college sweetheart, Chád, and the mother of four incredible children (Chadé, Ty, Dion, and Avani). I grew up in the Washington, D.C., area and graduated from Carnegie Mellon University before moving here to attend Temple University School of Medicine over 20 years ago. 

In August 2020, I, along with my daughter, Chadé, established a non-profit organization focused on the diversity, equity, and inclusion needs of our community.  This group of volunteers create, implement, and uphold efforts to promote diversity through the support and development of equity and inclusion practices, with the goal to eliminate discrimination and inequity in Montgomery County’s communities. 

I’ve translated that activism into civic leadership by winning a seat on the Lower Providence Township’s Board of Supervisors in 2021–the first African American woman to serve in the role–while flipping board control from Republican to Democrat. I currently serve as Vice-Chair. Now, to continue serving the public, I would like to utilize my medical expertise to take on the role of coroner.
