Radha Sadacharan, MD, MPH

About Me:
Family med and addiction med doc with a focus on racial justice through working with justice-involved individuals. Mass incarceration devastates communities of color and poor people in the United States. We need to do better.

After family medicine residency, I had the amazing opportunity to work at Brown and Rhode Island Department of Corrections, with stellar mentors. My residency experience and work in Rhode Island, along with reading the New Jim Crow, have informed all work I have pursued since. I have worked as a physician in both prisons and jails in multiple locations across the country, and most recently was the Statewide Medical Director for the Idaho Department of Corrections (IDOC) through the medical vendor. I currently am a healthcare subject matter expert for the National Association of Drug Court Professionals on two projects with the American Society of Addiction Medicine and have served on a few expert panels for Project ECHO, focused on addiction and correctional health, through the University of Idaho and the University of Wisconsin. I continue to work directly with IDOC on population and public health initiatives. I serve as community faculty for the University of Washington Addiction Medicine Fellowship located at the Boise VAMC and teach at both Full Circle Health Boise and Nampa residency programs. My interests include re-entry and addiction.
