ACPM Member and Donor: 
Victoria A. Cassano, MD, MPhil MPH, FACPM

Location: 
Pittsfield, Massachusetts

Education:
Columbia University, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, University of Michigan

 


Experience:
Dr. Cassano is a board certified Occupational/Environmental Physician who has over 25 years’ experience in the field. She received an MA and MPhil inhuman Genetics from Columbia University.  She completed medical school  at USUHS and her residency and MPH at the University of Michigan.

Why I feel it is important to donate to charity: 
The erosion of centralized funding for infrastructure, social safety net and public health and safety regulatory oversight is creating a dangerous situation. While I do not believe that private funds can or should replace public funding. It is imperative that we get the word out as professionals in public health, that we are reaching a dangerous tipping point.

Most fulfilling aspect of donating to the ACPM:
The fact that I am donating to an organization in which I have input into how the organization moves forward and where to focus the impact of our efforts.

How I hope my donations have helped others:
I believe that the continuous battle to provide quality education and training in the fields of Preventive Medicine as well as our advocacy in Washington and at the American Medical Association have had major effects on health care policy in this country.

What I’ve learned through my involvement with the ACPM:
That if you show up and are passionate about what you believe and support it with facts you can change health care policy. I have seen this happen when ACPM shows up and advocates for our positions at AMA and APHA. 

Something about me not everyone knows:
I am a member of the Women Divers Hall of Fame.
