Stephen Robinson, MD, MPH

Dr. Stephen S. Robinson received his MD from the School of Medicine at the University of Washington in Seattle and his MPH from the School of Hygiene and Public Health at Johns Hopkins University.

His passion for both public health and global health became a lifelong commitment after visiting Cuba in the early 70s and again in the mid-80s. He completed his residency in internal medicine at Harlem Hospital Center, and later served as a medical team leader to both Ghana and Liberia with Operation Crossroads Africa. In New York City, Dr. Robinson worked within the Sophie Davis School at the City College of New York for 15 years, to establish the CUNY Medical School, some of that time with the late Dr. George I. Lythcott. During his tenure with the City University, he also served as the interim director of the Physician Assistant Program at Harlem Hospital Center. Dr. Robinson worked as Director of Clinical Services with Georgia’s Primary Care Assn. He left the US for five years and worked in Tanzania, setting up an exchange program between the Institute for Medical Research in Tanzania and the Public Health Sciences Institute at Morehouse College. While there, he also worked with Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health evaluating health facilities for their readiness to provide HIV/AIDS care and treatment.

Since his move to Oakland, California, Dr. Robinson has been evaluating patients for their use of medical cannabis over the past ten years, both in-person and online. He has participated in panels at numerous cannabis-related conferences and delivered presentations on cannabis’ medicinal benefits and dosing strategies to both professional and lay audiences. He is a member of the Scientific Advisory Committee CW Analytics, an independent cannabis testing laboratory.
