The fellowship is a 22-month, degree-granting program that covers the cost of the MBA for Executives program at Yale. It gives health care professionals the leadership skills and understanding of teams, markets and organizations they need to address inequities in the U.S. health care system.

Rogers’ area of clinical and research focus are gastrointestinal malignancies with a special interest in pancreatic cancer, the microbiome, circulating tumor DNA and cancer disparities.

“As a medical oncologist and scientist, I witness firsthand the lives that are impacted by higher rates of disease and mortality in the African American community and other marginalized groups,” Rogers said. “I believe through a deeper understanding of the complexities of businesses and policies that affect the ecosystem of optimal health, well-being, and access to healthcare, I will be able to foster innovative and sustainable change.”
