Biography

Andrea Silber, MD, is the assistant clinical director for health equity and diversity at the Yale Cancer Center. In this role, she provides community education about cancer prevention and screening. 

As a breast oncologist, her focus is treating women diagnosed with breast cancer with a special interest in helping women who are socioeconomically disadvantaged.

“Every day, I get to work with wonderful women—some of whom may be not at their healthiest, but they’re at their best, strongest, and most generous, and are trying their hardest,” says Dr. Silber. “I see women who put their bodies through really tough things and do it with a sense of humor or generosity. I’m lucky. People who work with cancer patients see humanity at its best.”

Dr. Silber has received national recognition for her expertise in treating breast cancer in Black women. She dedicates her time to doing outreach work through a grant that supports economically disadvantaged women with breast cancer who are uninsured or underinsured.

She is also an associate professor of clinical medicine (medical oncology) at Yale School of Medicine.
