Shradha Biradar, D.O., M.P.H.

Shradha was born and raised in the rural, farming communities surrounding Bidar, India before immigrating with her family to the (somewhat) rural, farming community of Petaluma, California. Growing up with her feet in these two very different worlds, Shradha was always acutely aware of health inequity and injustice long before she had the vocabulary to describe it. She first came to SSRFMR as a high school junior, shadowing a PGY-1 as part of a pipeline program. Shradha was starstruck by this serendipitous introduction to family medicine and decided right then and there that this is what she wanted to do when she grew up: she wanted to save the world as a family doctor. Shradha wanted to work with communities who -like her own- were under resourced and often did not have adequate healthcare access. These were lofty dreams for a 16-year-old. But twelve years, several degrees, many formative projects, and innumerable validating experiences later- she got there! In that time, Shradha’s grandiose ideas of saving the world have gotten a little smaller and perhaps more reasonable.
These days, she finds herself most interested in health and public policy, advancement of DEI initiatives, and harm reduction. She cares fiercely about providing affirming care to LGBTQ+ patients, being a culturally and linguistically competent physician for the Latinx community and advocating for children and adolescents. Shradha is beyond thrilled to be back home and serving her own community, with folks who are just as passionate as she is about making the world a better place. And she thinks her scrappy 16-year-old self would be pretty thrilled too.
