Description

On this week's Black Doctors Speak, we are joined by Michael LeNoir, MD and Kim Rhoads, MD, MS, MPH, Office of Community Engagement at the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, as we discuss Medicine, Advocacy, Cancer and COVID.

Dr. Rhoads' background and scholarly work crosses the full cancer continuum from basic science (endothelial cell regulation and angiogenesis); to clinical care as a colorectal surgeon; through health services research in cancer disparities; and training in health policy (as a California Endowment Scholar in Health Policy at Harvard (2005-2006), and as the inaugural UCSF Philip R. Lee Fellow in Health Policy (2007-2008)). She has formal training in community organizing at the Center for Third World Organizing in Oakland, California; and Community Based Participatory Research as a member of the first cohort of academic-community partnership teams trained by the California Breast Cancer Research Program. Before joining the faculty at UCSF, Rhoads founded the Community Outreach and Engagement program for the Stanford Cancer Institute. Rhoads views community engagement and institutional partnerships as substantive pathways to promote health equity and eliminate disparities.
