About me

April Keener is a social worker who cares for patients with gynecologic cancers. She works as part of an interdisciplinary team, providing psychosocial support and advocacy for patients, families and caregivers facing the emotional and practical consequences of a cancer diagnosis.

Keener earned a master's degree from the University of Alabama School of Social Work. She is passionate about social justice, particularly with regard to health care issues, and completed an internship in Washington, DC, where she engaged in policy advocacy with members of Congress and the National Association of Social Workers.

I am passionate about health care both on the individual level, caring for patients as they navigate their cancer journeys, and on the national stage.
Please check with your health insurance plan regarding coverage for this type of care. Not all providers at UCSF are covered by every insurance plan.
