Charles Anderson, MD, MPH, MBA has served in a wide variety of roles over the past 25 years in the Boston-area health care community.
Growing up in Buffalo, NY, Anderson was inspired by his father who was a family practice physician and community organizer, and by his mother who used her masters in economics while working for the gas company to educate and advocate for vulnerable members of their community to not lose their heat during the winter season. Anderson gained an early appreciation for the interplay between health, the environment, education, access to care and economic development and will bring this foundational knowledge to support the mission of The Dimock Center to heal and uplift patients, families and the community.
Anderson received his Bachelor’s degree from Princeton University, an MPH from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, an MD from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and an MBA from the Boston University Questrom School of Business.
