Our very own Dr. Ana M. Grace was recently named “Woman of the Year” in the 29th Congressional District represented by the Honorable Adam Schiff!
“As a physician, Dr. Grace has dedicated her career to helping individuals and patients in need. In addition to assisting patients in attaining a better understanding of various medical conditions,” Rep. Schiff said, “Dr. Grace’s steadfast dedication and unparalleled service makes her a superb choice to exemplify contributions of women in our community, during Women’s History Month.”
Dr. Grace discovered her passion for helping others at an early age. Upon receiving a Bachelor of Science in biochemistry from California State University, Fullerton, she went on to attend medical school at the University of Wisconsin and completed her residency at the University of Southern California and the University of Arizona.
Dr. Grace has dedicated much of her time in reaching out to senior citizens and the Spanish speaking population. She has made numerous presentations to senior citizens regarding cancer awareness, screening and prevention. With her Spanish speaking skills, Dr. Grace has also been able to communicate medical information about common malignancies to the public, with the ultimate goal of reducing the risk for cancer and emphasizing early diagnosis. Dr. Grace has discussed various topics such as cancer awareness, the effects of secondhand smoking and the recent nuclear emergency in Japan on Spanish news stations such as Univision, Telemundo, and Azteca.
The Pasadena CyberKnife Center team would like to congratulate Dr. Grace on her many accomplishments and contributions to the community and celebrate her selection as “Woman of the Year 2011”. Dr. Grace, congratulations again, we are so proud of you and are so fortunate to have you on our team!
