Dr. Greenup is an Associate Professor of Surgery and Population Health Sciences at the Duke School of Medicine and Duke Cancer Institute. She is the founder and co-director of the Duke Breast Cancer Outcomes Research Group, and Core Faculty for the Duke Margolis Center for Health Policy.
She earned her undergraduate degrees in Zoology and Psychology at the University of Wisconsin, where she later completed a Masters in Public Health. She attended the Medical College of Wisconsin for Medical School and General Surgery Residency, and went on to complete a Breast Surgical Oncology Fellowship at the Massachusetts General Hospital, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, and Brigham and Women’s Hospital. In 2016, she received the National Institutes of Health Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women’s Health (BIRCWH) Award to evaluate how financial costs and burden relate to preference-sensitive decisions for breast cancer surgery.
