Saint Louis Park, MN — Dr. Rahel Nardos has a bold vision for ending health disparities for women and girls. She believes the fierce urgency and scale of disparities in women's health requires a population-level focus on root causes and systemic barriers that span culture and geography. From her experiences as a child with health issues growing up in Ethiopia to her current position as Director of Global Women’s Health at University of Minnesota’s Center for Global Health and Social Responsibility, she has been witness to the lack of access women around the world have to quality, respectful and timely health care. She wants to train the next generation of equity-minded women’s health care champions and build trust between women and healthcare institutions. To achieve her large-scale change vision, she will acquire advocacy skills, pursue global health leadership and networking opportunities, learn how to elevate storytelling to improve outcomes in health care, and deepen her mindfulness practice.
