Cristin Kearns, DDS, MBA, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Preventive and Restorative Dental Sciences and the Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies at the University of California, San Francisco. She is one of the first academics to rigorously study the influence of the sugar industry on health and health policy. She first saw the devastating effects of sugar as a dental director for clinics serving low-income populations and as a manager of dental operations at the Kaiser Permanente Dental Care Program. She has helped identify more than 300,000 pages of food industry-related documents now available online to researchers and the public as part of UCSF’s Food Industry Documents Archive library project.
