Stacy Smith is the Distinguished Weissman Chair of MSK Imaging at Harvard and BWH Radiology Residency Program Director at Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston. She was a single active LDS academic working woman for many years until she got married 5 years ago to another “single for ages” LDS man of the same age. She and her husband have a 5 year-old daughter. They serve together in a singles ward and especially love their work there. Stacy attended BYU, dental and medical school in Canada, and completed a radiology residency in Washington D.C. She runs a national mentoring program for radiologists focusing on women. Her passion for humanitarian outreach and education has led to the creation of the new BWH Radiology Trainee Outreach Programs in the Navajo Nation, Haiti and Rwanda. Stacy is a singer and dancer by love (not necessarily talent) and performed in a musical troupe for general entertainment supporting the arts in Canada and U.S to help pay for medical school.
