Tanya Dutta, M.D., 45, loving wife of Neville Bamji, M.D., and mother of Tara and Jayden, passed away on May 31, 2021, after a valiant battle with cancer. She was born on March 3, 1976, in Chicago, Illinois to Tamisra and Dipak Dutta.
Tanya, a successful cardiologist, graduated first in her class at New Trier High School in Winnetka, Illinois and subsequently attended Harvard University, where she graduated magna cum laude in Biology (A.B., A.M.) and served as Associate Editorial Chair of the Harvard Crimson. She received her medical degree from Cornell University, and subsequently completed an internal medicine residency at New York Presbyterian Hospital where she received the Joseph G.

Most recently, she was a non-invasive cardiologist and Director of Echocardiography with Westchester Medical Center. Tanya also co-authored numerous studies that have been published in various peer-reviewed journals.
