CEO of Last Mile Health; Associate Physician in the Division of Global Health Equity, Brigham & Women’s Hospital / Harvard Medical School
Dr. Raj Panjabi is CEO of Last Mile Health and an Associate Physician in the Division of Global Health Equity at Brigham & Women’s Hospital / Harvard Medical School. At age 9, Panjabi narrowly escaped a civil war in his home country of Liberia. He returned to serve the people he had left behind, co-founding Last Mile Health (LMH), which works with the Liberian government to save lives in the world’s most remote villages by giving local villagers the training, equipment, and support they need to become professional frontline health workers. LMH’s work has been recognized by President Bill Clinton, Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, and Big Bang Philanthropy. Named a “social disruptor” by the Forbes 400 Summit on Philanthropy, Raj is a fellow of the Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation, Mulago Foundation, and Echoing Green, and the current Global Health Track Advisor for the Clinton Global Initiative.
