Overview

Dr. Benabio grew up in a small Italian neighborhood in Rhode Island, where he developed a life-long love for the Red Sox, pasta, and Dunkin Donuts. He earned a BA from Providence College (Go, Friars!) and an MA from Brown University. After working in alcohol and addiction studies at Brown, he and his wife moved to North Carolina where he was project manager of a stroke study at UNC-Chapel Hill. In 2003, he graduated first in his class from Wake Forest University School of Medicine, where he also served as Class President, President of Alpha Omega Alpha, and was the recipient of the prestigious Faculty Award. He completed his medical internship at Scripps Mercy Hospital in San Diego and his dermatology residency at UC Irvine, where he was named chief resident in his final year. Currently, Dr. Benabio is Physician Director of Healthcare Transformation at Kaiser Permanente in San Diego, CA. He is a board certified dermatologist and member of the American Academy of Dermatology, and for 7 years has been experimenting with digital technologies to find better ways to care for patients. In San Diego, he helped create and sustain one of the largest telehealth programs in the country. He has been an example and advocate for using social networks to educate and empower patients and has become a sought after speaker, lecturing on telemedicine, health innovation, and social networking for health systems and physician groups. A consultant for telemedicine and digital start-ups, he serves on several boards, including the External Advisory Board for the Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media. Dr. Benabio has authored social networking papers in academic journals, writes a monthly column on technology and healthcare for Skin & Allergy News, and is frequently quoted both in print and online in publications such as O, The Oprah Magazine, Health, The New York Times, and WebMD. Perhaps, most importantly, Glamour magazine named him a Rock Star of Dermatology, making him his niece's coolest uncle. He enjoys hiking, bodybuilding, and traveling, and hopes to become a cowboy in Montana during his retirement.
