Radical transformational leadership is leading change from the universal values of dignity, equity, compassion and humility to transform self, people, systems and cultures towards equity, antiracism and sustainable results.

Inspired by Dr. Monica Sharma, Former director of United Nations Leadership Development

I am the health officer of the City & County of San Francisco, and director of the Population Health Division (PHD) at the San Francisco Department of Public Health. Striving to embody and promote the universal values of dignity, equity, compassion and humility, I work to mobilize communities and institutions to transform policies and systems towards a culture of equity, antiracism, healing and health for all people and our planet. As health officer, I exercise leadership and legal authority to protect and promote equity and health. As PHD director, I direct public health services. In this blog I focus on population health equity, leadership, lean, and decision intelligence. I also teach epidemiologic R programming at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health.
