Nivedita Choudhary, MD, MPH, passed away on Thursday, April 13, 2017, at the age of 45, surrounded by her family at her home in Fredericksburg.
Dr. Choudhary studied medicine at St. Bartholomew’s and The London School of Medicine, graduating in 1994 and went on to pursue her passion for psychiatry through training at the Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit. She then established a successful and welcoming practice in Grand Rapids, Michigan, until 2007 before moving on to the Peak Mental Health Services: her labour of love in Fredericksburg.
A free spirit and an independent thinker, her love for the world’s cultures and diversity was strengthened through her penchant for travel. Born in India, studied in England and worked in America, her experiences continued to magnify her open-mindedness and infectiously positive outlook on life. She was a citizen of the world in every sense.
She is survived by her husband, Dr. Harish Chandra; her sons, Rohan Chandra and Dave Raj Chandra of Fredericksburg; brothers Shaurav Choudhary and Gautam Choudhary; sister Lily Singh; parents Mahendra Choudhary and Asha Choudhary; and parents-in-law Ramnandan Sinha and Chandra Prabha Sinha.
A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 16 at Covenant Funeral Service, Fredericksburg. The family will receive friends from noon until 2pm at the funeral home.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Mary Washington Hospital Regional Cancer Centre at MWH Foundation, Snowden House, 2600 Mary Washington Blvd, Fredericksburg, 22401.

Celebrating the life of Nivedita Choudhary, MD, MPH
Thank you for signing Nivedita Choudhary, MD, MPH's Guestbook
I was so sorry to hear that Niv had passed away. I met Niv in the first week of medical school in Oct 1989, her room was opposite mine in our dormitory. We became good friends and went on to share a rented house in Homerton for the duration of medical school. I have many very fond memories of this time. Niv was a wonderful friend, kind hearted and vivacious. She will be missed. My thoughts are with her family.

Dr. Chandra & Family, Dr. Choudhary was a wonderful lady and physician. We was always willing to listen and would ask about my family. The last time I saw her, we chatted about the disease that we shared. She said that she didn't know what the stars had in store for her. She will be missed by many. May her smile be with you and comfort you.

Harish, I am so sorry to hear about your wife. I had no idea she was sick. I wish there was something I could do to ease your pain but I can't. I am convinced that the pain you feel when you loose someone you care about is a reflection of the love you had for them. And that certainly is a good thing.
