Rachel Dowty, RN MPH

Rachel has been with the Cancer Clinical Research Program at the Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason in Seattle, Washington since February 2017. Before that, she was a Research Associate at Indiana University, focusing on federally-funded research on cigarette smoking behaviors and smoking during pregnancy.

Rachel’s experience encompasses the spectrum of health and health care and includes nursing, case management, community health, health care policy, and research. She is thrilled to be back in the Pacific Northwest and to have moved into cancer research where all of her career experience and passions have come together.
