Sarah Galinato Gerrish, MD (she/they)Clinic Director - Kuna / JEDI Chairperson
Dr. Gerrish is a health curator who tries to recognize that health identities are non-binary, intersectional and take time to cultivate. She is committed to the mission of the Full Circle Health, where she graduated in 2012, to address health disparities in meaningful and progressive ways. In this teaching environment, her joy is developing a longitudinal anti-racism health equity curriculum, creating clear pathways for those underrepresented in medicine and helping to create safe and brave spaces for difficult conversations. Another joy is mentoring early career physicians, especially those with marginalized identities, and cultivating the women in medicine interest group for Full Circle Health-Boise.
Living and traveling abroad has given her a special interest in refugee care, child and maternal health including obstetrics, and social and global health advocacy. During medical school at the University of Washington, she had an emphasis in global and underserved health care. As a co-facilitator for the Idaho Health Equity Collective and member of the IAFP Equity Taskforce, she believes advocating for justice, inclusion, equity and cultural humility in all settings is a priority. As a Boise native, she Ioves everything about the outdoors especially trail running, climbing and skiing. Being a physician mom to two sports forward hilarious boys, she understands the importance of mentorship within healthcare. As a partner to an innovative clinical health psychologist, she understands the importance of wellness, empowering others, and making room for joy.
