Every year, RHAP welcomes a new cohort of primary care physicians who are dedicated to providing and teaching reproductive health care within family medicine to our Fellowship program. Take some time to get to know the wonderful physicians who have joined our team for our year-long Reproductive Health Care and Advocacy Fellowship (RHA).
Ivonne McLean, MD (RHA Fellow) – Ivonne is a fellow with the Institute for Family Health in New York. She completed her Family Medicine Residency at the University of Massachusetts, Worcester, where her interest and commitment to women’s reproductive health grew. Before making her way to Massachusetts, Ivonne graduated from St. George’s University School of Medicine and worked in their New York office for a short stint. Prior to medical school, she delved into the world of research, working as a Project Coordinator in multiple clinical trials at UCSF’s Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital. It was through her work with underserved communities and disparities research at UCSF that she decided to pursue a career as a physician. A native of Colombia, her academic and clinical research interests also include global and rural health, adolescent health, unconscious bias, curriculum development and health literacy. As her career continues, she hopes to address reproductive health access and inequalities in health care as well as advocate for abortion care as part of full-spectrum Family Medicine. Ivonne earned her BA in Anthropology and Spanish from Rice University and has worked in Lesotho, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Paraguay, and Nicaragua. She enjoys live music, dancing, and scuba diving.
Hannah Biederman, MD (RHA Fellow) – Hannah is a fellow with the Cambridge Health Alliance in Massachusetts. She went to the Mt. Sinai Beth Israel Family Medicine Residency in New York, NY where she was chief resident. Hannah has strong interests in reproductive healthcare and underserved medicine, both of which were strengthened during her time in residency. She is excited to continue her training during this fellowship year; incorporating full spectrum women’s health care including access to abortion services in her practice as a family physician. Hannah attended medical school at Stony Brook University School of Medicine. She graduated with a B.S. in Biological Anthropology from Duke University.
