As a Global Health MD with an in-depth background in mental health, my mission is to advance transdisciplinarity in medicine and innovate the landscape of healthcare, through intensive collaboration for the Sustainable Development Goal 3. I am an advisory member of the World Health Innovation Summit CIC (WHIS) where consultants, companies, and academics collaborate to improve healthcare. We have partnered with the UN-Habitat, UN Academic Impact, Interparliamentary Union, and WHO, whose shared mission is to assist and accelerate the SDG implementation process and ensure the world reaches its goal, at the latest by 2030.
The implementation of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals springs from the belief shared by United Nations officials, senior business leaders, and NGOs that a transparent, academically driven index is needed to rank companies and countries on their sustainability practices.

True abundance comes from connection. In 2018 we celebrated the Global Health Delivery Intensive Program at Harvard University, a growing network by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Harvard Business School, and Harvard Medical School, in an effort to create an interdisciplinary skill set that will improve how we build health care. We have shared our determination and mutual understanding as a group of over 27 nationalities over several years. Healthcare is the work of many, with all of us going the extra mile. I learned from committed leaders who have been developing health delivery systems, with a dedication that is of rare humanistic nature - among them leaders and representatives at Partners in Health, Seed Global Health, Abundance Foundation, The Gates Foundation, and many more. As a global citizen, being part of the growing Global Health network inspires me to co-create brighter and more sustainable healthcare. From a futurist perspective, Global Health lays the groundwork for future health systems capacity that we will continue to build not only on our planet but beyond it.
