Prior to joining the Medical College of Wisconsin, Dr. Kamaraju served as clinical Assistant Professor at University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in Madison and as Medical Director for the Vince Lombardi Cancer Center at Aurora Wilkinson Medical Clinic in Summit.
Dr. Kamaraju's current research project, “Reducing Mortality by Screening Mammography Among Asian, Somali and Bosnian Refugees,” is funded by the Susan G. Komen Foundation. She won the 2015 Champions in Women’s Health Award funded by Wisconsin Women’s Health Foundation, which honors individuals who devote themselves for improving the quality of life for women and their families in their professional career.
She has been actively involved in the community for the past several years with various community outreach projects focusing on racial, cultural and financial disparities in relation to cancer prevention and survivorship. She is founder of the Asian Women Health Forum Projects: Women’s Day – Annual Fall Educational Seminars for Asian Women, which promotes health education, gynecological cancer prevention and development of models to improve cultural barriers to promote breast health awareness for minority Asian women. She is a member of Survivorship and Community Engagement Advisory Committees at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Dr. Kamaraju is currently partnering with several community sites to serve women with various cultural, language and financial barriers in their breast health education, and screening mammography under Susan G. Komen Foundation Educational grant in collaboration. This project has evolved into a community-academic partnership model with almost 12-15 partnering sites including Wisconsin Well Woman Program and the regional mobile mammographic coach serving several communities that we live in.
