She has directed Women’s Health Research at The Fenway Institute since 2015 & has been a member of the faculty since 2010. She is a physician at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Fenway Health. Dr. Potter will join Dr. Kenneth H. Mayer, who has been a Co-Chair of The Fenway Institute since 2001, in leading The Fenway Institute. Potter stated, “It is an incredible honor to be named co-chair of The Fenway Institute. I am excited & grateful for this new opportunity to advance research to reduce health disparities among LGBT populations & to enhance health outcomes for members of our diverse communities. I look forward to continuing & growing The Fenway Institute’s commitment to nurturing the careers of LGBT scientists & healthcare practitioners. I am also enormously inspired by the legacy & groundbreaking contributions of my late friend and colleague Dr. Bradford.” The Fenway Institute was co-founded in 2001 by Mayer & Dr. Judith B. Bradford. Mayer & Bradford ran The Fenway Institute together as co-chairs until Bradford’s death this past February.
