Dr. Rodgers, a 2017-2018 fellow, most recently completed his family medicine residency at Kaiser Permanente, Fortana Medical Center in Fontana, CA. His leadership roles have included: Clinical Strategic Goals (CSG) Residency Leader, Residency Diabetes Clinic Co-Founder, and Diversity and Inclusion Hospital Committee Member. He is the recipient of a Kaiser Global Health Stipend and has been a Health Policy Elective Fellow. Dr. Rodgers’ strong desire to help people live better, healthier lives, and to seek out those most underserved, led him to organize a trip to a village in the Philippines called Lingayen, a small community that had not received adequate health care for over seven years. This experience underscored for him how health policy and social determinants of health affect entire populations, and served to heighten his desire for justice in healthcare. In 2014, Dr. Rodgers received his medical degree from the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, Los Angeles, CA.
