Philosophy of Care
Working in prevention, my focus is usually on promoting good health in large groups of workers. However, it's in getting to know individual patients that makes my work feel meaningful. One of the best parts of my work is when I call patients with questions related to their testing and then we go on to have bigger conversations about health and wellness.
As the UC Davis Medical Surveillance Program’s director, Dr. Belafsky works with California employers to identify potential workplace health hazards. She develops individualized medical screening programs based on these hazards to help keep workers safe.
