Rachel Adams Greenup
Assistant Professor of Surgery

I am a breast cancer surgeon and health services researcher with a clinical practice entirely focused on the treatment of breast disease. My prior research has revolved around two major themes: 1) the doctor-patient relationship within oncology, and 2) high-value breast cancer care (i.e. evidence-based breast cancer treatment translating into high quality cancer care at lower health care costs). 

My long-standing interest in high value oncology care was initially sparked when I completed my Masters in Public Health degree at the University of Wisconsin.  My prior research has demonstrated that adherence to evidence-based practice leads to a “win-win” of providing the best care for patients while naturally reducing health care spending. Through the BIRCWH Scholar program, I am currently working on better understanding how knowledge of health care costs and burden may impact patients' and doctors' treatment decisions.
