Sarah Henn, MD, MPH, Chief Medical Officer at Whitman-Walker Health

March 19, 2019

As an undergraduate student at Hamilton College, Dr. Sarah Henn was passionate about diplomacy and policy. She credits courses she took from a former diplomat with opening her eyes to the complex processes involved in enacting policies within a governing body. Although she was inspired, Dr. Henn realized she was interested in pursuing a path that allowed for greater autonomy in implementing change. This realization led Dr. Henn to her career in medicine. Now, serving as both the Chief Medical Officer at Whitman-Walker Health in Washington, DC and an institutional representative for the DC CFAR's executive committee, Dr. Henn's focus in both capacities is to ensure that the community's voice and needs are continuously being heard and effectively addressed in research.
