Richard Bold, MD, MBA, FACS, is physician-in-chief at UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center in Sacramento, CA.

Dr. Bold became a State Chair in order to share his more than 20 years of Commission on Cancer (CoC) experience with the Cancer Liaison Physicians (CLPs) in his region. He believes that through the CoC accreditation process, physicians can compare outcomes with their peers and share best practices to improve cancer care.

In his spare time, Dr. Bold enjoys wine tasting.
