Dr. Gordon is the former Medical Director of the Breast Program at BC Women’s Hospital.
Dr. Paula Gordon has made it her mission to ensure women have access to life-saving breast cancer screening and diagnosis, trailblazing a bright path at BC Women’s.
With one in nine women at risk for developing breast cancer, Dr. Gordon is on the frontlines of saving women’s lives. An award-winning teacher, researcher and visionary, it is a task for which Gordon and her team are well equipped through the Sadie Diamond Breast Health Imaging Centre at BC Women’s, and its state-of-the-art tomosynthesis mammography.
Dr. Gordon’s work earned her the prestigious Order of BC in 2016, and lead to her being selected as one of Canada’s 100 Most Powerful Women. She remains a tireless proponent of regular mammograms and providing women with access to high-quality examinations. She is excited by BC Women’s position as a trial site for a new technology in screening, Tomosynthesis. For Gordon, it’s more healthy, breast-cancer-free women that will be the living proof of her program’s success.
