Two Women Scholars Are Leaving Their Posts in the Academic World

J. Nwando Olayiwola, director of the Center for Primary Care Excellence at the University of California, San Francisco, has announced that she is stepping down from her post to become the chief clinical transformation officer for RubiconMD. The healthcare technology company connects primary care physicians with top specialists around the county. This allows patients to consult with specialists without having to leave the office of their primary care physician.

Dr. Olayiwola holds a bachelor’s degree and a medical doctorate from Ohio State University. She also holds a master of public health degree from Harvard University.

Diane Cassels, chief administrative officer at the Winship Cancer Institute at Emory University in Atlanta, has retired. She joined the staff at the institute in 1992 as chief department administrator for radiation oncology. From 2002 to 2006, Cassels was the chief operating officer at the Emory Children’s Center and the department of pediatrics.

Cassels holds a master’s degree in health services administration from the University of St. Francis in Joliet, Illinois.
