About Anna Bazinet
I grew up in Bozeman, Montana rambling around in the mountains with two artist parents. They always encouraged me to pursue my interest in nature and science, while the family environment provided a strong appreciation for art and culture. This led me to attend Wesleyan University for a degree in Biology and Environmental Studies. After college, I lived in New York where I first worked on the Clearwater, Pete Seeger's tall ship, sailing around the Hudson River teaching children the importance of river restoration. Soon after that, I worked as a research coordinator for clinical trials of new ovarian cancer treatments at Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
Itching for more access to the outdoors and time on the water, I was excited about the opportunity to return west and attended the University of Washington for a Masters in Environmental Health. Through my graduate studies, I became involved with groups working on the Duwamish River, a Superfund site in south Seattle. My research focused on fish consumption behaviors of food insecure individuals around the Puget Sound. This work enhanced my understanding and awareness of the health inequities in our country and around the world, which drives my work in public health and will likely have a huge impact in my career in medicine. During medical school, I had the opportunity to put my passion into action by participating in a 6-month fellowship focusing on women’s health and HIV prevention in Gondar, Ethiopia, a challenging and illuminating experience.
I am thrilled to be joining the team at Swedish First Hill because of its commitment to underserved populations, its training in full-spectrum care, and its wonderful people. I am specifically interested in preventative medicine, refugee medicine, and women’s health, with the possibility of more global health in the future.
When not working, I enjoy being outside: sailing, backpacking, mountaineering, and playing ultimate Frisbee. I also enjoy hosting dinner parties, reading, and hanging out with my husband Oliver!
