Dr. Eva Andersson-Dubin is a Swedish-American internal medicine specialist, philanthropist, and the founder of the Tisch Cancer Institute’s Dubin Breast Center at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City. Since its inception in 2011, Dr. Andersson has devoted her time to working alongside the Center’s staff, ensuring the facility provides comprehensive, streamlined, and compassionate care to breast cancer patients from diagnosis through recovery.
Dr. Andersson has served on the Mount Sinai Medical Center Board of Directors since 2014. She is also on the Medical Advisory Board of the Breast Cancer Alliance, a private foundation that aims to improve survival rates by strategically investing in breast cancer research and education programs. Dr. Andersson previously served on the boards of the Michael J. Fox Foundation, the Alliance for Lupus Research, the Friends of the Karolinska, and the Trinity School of New York.
Having grown up in the small coastal town of Uddevalla, Sweden, Dr. Andersson became the first person in her family to attend university, earning a bachelor’s degree in science and graduating top of her class. Intent on pursuing a career in medicine from a young age, she worked as a model and served as a global cultural ambassador for Sweden after being named Miss Sweden in 1980 as a means to funding future medical studies.
Dr. Andersson attended the Karolinska Institutet medical university in Stockholm, as well as UCLA’s School of Medicine, where she earned her M.D. in 1989. She completed the Lenox Hill Hospital medical residency program and obtained a board certification in internal medicine in 1993. She then served as an in-house physician at NBCUniversal for 18 years, where she specialized in internal medicine. A breast cancer survivor herself, Dr. Andersson’s areas of interest include innovative approaches to the treatment of breast cancer and internal medicine.
In 2013, Mount Sinai bestowed an honorary doctorate degree to Dr. Andersson in recognition of her contributions as a transformational advocate for breast cancer care and research.
Dr. Andersson was recognized in 2019 by Crain’s New York as a Notable Woman in Healthcare for her contributions towards pioneering a holistic approach to breast cancer patient care. In a 2020 ceremony, Mount Sinai honored Dr. Andersson’s 10 years of leadership of the Dubin Breast Center. Dr. Kenneth Davis, the hospital’s President & CEO, heralded the Center’s accomplishments, to include groundbreaking research and clinical trials, as “nothing less than extraordinary.”
Dr. Andersson is married to the American entrepreneur and philanthropist Glenn Dubin. She enjoys cycling and tennis, and most of all, being a mom to the couple’s three children.
