Ruth Cadet, MD MPH
Undergraduate: Brown University
Graduate: Columbia University (MPH)
Medical School: University at Buffalo
Ruth was born in Brooklyn NY and grew up in northern NJ. She attended college at Brown University concentrating in Sociology. At Brown, she discovered her love for public health and after graduating she decided to get her MPH in Epidemiology at Columbia University. While pursuing her MPH she earned a position working with NYC Health + Hospitals, the public safety net health care system of New York City. She started there as a data analyst and eventually went on to manage several initiatives focused on improving community health and chronic disease management. Though she loved her work, she knew she wanted to provide direct care to patients and so she decided to pursue medical school at the University at Buffalo. There she learned about Med-Peds and knew she had found her calling. The reasons she wanted to go into Med-Peds are the same reasons she wanted to come back to Brown for residency. She knows at Brown she will receive great clinical training in caring for a diverse patient population while also being able to pursue work in public health in the US and abroad.
In her free time, she likes connecting with family and friends, reading (or really listening to audiobooks at this point), playing tennis, and playing piano & guitar. She is also attempting to cook and bake more with varying degrees of success.
