A musician, a physician, a mother, a volunteer, and a leader are just a few words to describe Dr. Cole. Above all, she is highly passionate about health equity, advocating that everyone should have the ability to achieve great health, no matter what they look like, how much money they make, or where they come from. Since serving the underserved had always been a priority, she completed her residency in Family Medicine at Carolinas Medical Center, where she was part of the Urban Track program. During that time, she received the Bryant L. Galusha Intern of the Year Award and served as Co-Chief Resident her final year. Since completing medical school, Dr. Cole has held multiple leadership roles including Medical Director of a rural health clinic in SC, Residency Program Director, and Chair of the Department of Family Medicine. She was named the first ever Chief Community Impact Officer at Atrium Health where she created the first Community Health Department, establishing the first Health Equity and Social Determinants of Health strategies. Most recently, Dr. Cole joined CommonSpirit Health as its first System Vice President of Population Health Innovation and Policy, with responsibilities for strategy development regarding vulnerable populations, health equity, and innovative care delivery models.
