Marin General Hospital Radiologist Vida Campbell Recognized at Zero Breast Cancer’s 15th Annual Honor Thy Healer Awards Program

GREENBRAE, CA — Radiologist Dr. Vida Campbell, medical director of the Breast Health Center at Marin General Hospital, and head of breast imaging for the North Bay Division of California Advanced Imaging Medical Associates, will be honored as the “2014 Healing Professional” by Zero Breast Cancer (ZBC). Dr. Campbell is being recognized for her professional commitment and her “sincere, caring, patient and compassionate care of women diagnosed with breast cancer.”

“Dr. Campbell is a rare combination of intelligence, of a doctor who is so competent, who really understands her work, but at the same time is compassionate and loving to her patients, provides all the resources that her patient would need, and helps them through a very difficult process,” says Victoria Granucci, a patient who was diagnosed by Dr. Campbell, and nominated her for the award.
 


Dr. Campbell was instrumental in development of the Breast MRI program at the Breast Health Center. She championed the establishment of a high risk breast screening program and continues to play an important role in the Breast Navigation Service at Marin General Hospital.

After receiving her medical education at George Washington School of Medicine, Dr. Campbell completed her internship at St. Mary’s Medical Center. Following her radiology and neuroradiology residencies at UCSF, she joined the radiologists at Marin General Hospitalin 2000, where she quickly gravitated toward the breast imaging program. “I was drawn to the opportunities to form relationships with patients,” she says. “I love working with radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, breast surgeons, breast health navigators and nurses. It’s very much a team approach to the breast cancer care of our patients.”

Of the Healing Professional award, Dr. Campbell says, “It’s an honor to receive this award from Zero Breast Cancer. It’s the ultimate compliment to be recognized by my patients. I have to say that I owe so much to them. They’ve made my life richer and fuller by knowing them.”

Dr. Campbell adds, “On a professional level, receiving this award has triggered a period of intense reflection. Looking back on the last decade and our work here at the breast program I recognized our accomplishments. Looking forward to the future I know that we have a lot more to accomplish.”

The award will be presented at the 15th Annual Honor Thy Healer awards dinner on Thursday, May 8, 2014, at the Mill Valley Community Center, 180 Camino Alto in Mill Valley, California. For tickets to the Honor Thy Healer awards dinner go to the website or call
