Rachel M. Bond, MD, system director, Women’s Heart Health Program, Dignity Health

BACKGROUND: Rachel M. Bond, MD, FACC is a board-certified cardiologist with Dignity Health in Arizona. She is a women’s heart health & prevention specialist and the author of several review papers referencing maternal health, sex and gender differences and cardiovascular conditions that predominantly affect women, along with opinion pieces aimed at addressing health equity, reducing health disparities, and promoting the professional development of women and minorities in the health-science profession.

SOURCE OF PRIDE: “I’m most proud of becoming the first medical doctor in my family. This has fostered my mission of increasing diversity in the medical field, where Black women only encompass 2% of the population. I have such pleasure in mentoring young women of color who may also be “the first”, as I know I’m making an impact on our society.”

SURPRISING FACT: “When I have time to watch television, the show I tend to binge over and over is ‘Bridgerton.’ Thankfully, the episodes are released in bulk to allow for this!”

SOURCE OF INSPIRATION: “I’m most inspired by Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who has left such an immeasurable impact on our country, society and the advancement of women’s equality. She is an icon who, despite being one of nine women in her Harvard law class and only the second woman to be appointed to the Supreme Court, preserved in the fight for equality.”
