During her first year as dean of Mayo Medical School, Gabriel launched a program to design, implement, and disseminate an education model to help future physicians achieve better care, healthier patients and communities, and more affordable health care – an initiative recognized by the American Medical Association through a competitive award.
Her largely NIH-funded research has resulted in more than 250 peer-reviewed original scientific publications addressing the costs, determinants and outcomes of the rheumatic diseases.
She has served on many governmental committees and advisory boards, including the FDA Drug Safety and Risk Management Committee. Gabriel was appointed by the U.S. Government Accountability Office to the methodology committee of the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute, created by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, and served as the committee’s first chair.
Gabriel received her undergraduate education at the University of Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, and the College of Pharmacy at the University of Saskatchewan Medical School before earning her medical degree at the University of Saskatchewan.
