Alum Connection: Women’s Health leader & Entrepreneur, Dr. Gina Fundaro

In January 2020, Dr. Gina Fundaro found herself at a crossroads. She was a successful breast imaging radiologist with Henry Ford Health System, while her children were also succeeding athletically in their early teenage years. After a twenty-year career impacting patients’ lives, Gina made the decision to stop practicing medicine and open three Goldfish Swim Schools in Virginia. Just over a year later, Gina is back working with patients part-time. A proud U-M Dearborn graduate, Gina attributes her liberal arts education for giving her both a desire to serve others through her medical vocation and the agility to pivot into entrepreneurial pursuits. Join Gina for a conversation about exploring a medical career in service to others--and having the courage to make life changes as an established adult and professional.

About Dr. Gina Fundaro:
A lifelong native of Michigan, Dr. Gina Fundaro spent the majority of her career at Henry Ford Health System. She was also the site director of the Henry Ford Fairlane Breast Center. Prior to this, she worked at the Alexander Walt Comprehensive Breast Center of the Karmanos Cancer Institute from 2005 to 2007. She specializes in breast imaging and breast interventional procedures. She joined a private group, Regional Medical Imaging in January 2021.

Her passion for women’s healthcare arose while in college following her grandmother’s death from preventable breast cancer. It highlighted the need to catch breast tumors early, spurring her to enter radiology and help women fight the disease.

Being a physician, it was important to Gina that her kids learned how to swim. This passion also drove Gina to learn how to swim at age 39, and in 2012, she completed an Ironman Triathlon. Two years later, Gina and her husband opened their first of three Goldfish Swim Schools in Northern, VA.
