Empowering Our Community through Health Education and Outreach

Cadey Harrel, MD

Dr. Harrel is a board certified Family Physician who has spent her career dedicated to Maternal-Child Health and reducing health disparities. Dr. Harrel attended medical school at the University of Arizona College of Medicine, where she was awarded for her work with the Commitment to Underserved People (CUP) program. She completed her residency in St. Louis, MO, at Mercy Family Medicine Residency Program after completing a year of OB/Gyn, where she was awarded as physician scholar in her graduating class. She is an Arizona native, and after graduating from her residency, moved with her young family back to her home state to continue her mission of caring for communities that have limited access to health resources. She is currently an Assistant Professor and the Founder of the Women’s Health Clinic at Banner-University of Arizona at the Abrams South Campus Clinic. She was recently awarded the Banner Health Hero Award for her commitment to her patients.

Dr. Harrel has been involved with many medical and philanthropic organizations over the years. She has co-authored numerous protocols for the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine, served as the Women’s Delegate to the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), sat on many statewide boards, and been involved in both health education and healthy policy regionally and nationally. She speaks both regionally and nationally on topics such as breastfeeding and lactation, maternal health disparities, and health policy. She recognized early in her career that our fractured healthcare system doesn’t permit physicians to take the time needed to educate people about health topics that impact their families and communities, and that by closing this knowledge gap, health outcomes and community wellness could be improved.
