I am the Jill Bennett Endowed Professor of Breast Cancer and Professor of Global Health at the University of Washington and a Member of the Clinical Research Division at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. I am committed to improving outcomes in women’s cancers at both a local and global level.
I am the co-Founder, Medical Director and Team Physician for Team Survivor Northwest, a Seattle-based non-profit aimed at helping female cancer survivors improve their health through fitness and exercise. I founded the Women’s Empowerment Cancer Advocacy Network (WE CAN) to empower breast and cervical cancer patient advocates in low- and middle-income countries to become strong partners in improving breast cancer outcomes in their countries. WE CAN hosts regional patient education and advocacy summits in Eastern Europe/Central Asia and East Africa. I am co-Chair of the Breast Cancer Initiative 2.5 (BCI2.5), a campaign focused on improving breast cancer outcomes globally by 2025. I am a member of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center’s Global Oncology program and mentor medical oncology fellows from the Uganda Cancer Institute both in Seattle and Uganda.
