Although trained as a general internist and pediatrician, Pritesh Gandhi has spent much of his career focused on population health and developing innovative programs that reduce poverty and address health inequities.
During PLS, Gandhi led a multidisciplinary team that developed a social determinants of health screening tool. Once adopted city-wide, the data from this tool will be accessible in real-time, uncovering geographic “hot-spots” of both community assets and obstacles. This program will lead to timely and focused community-based initiatives in identified neighborhoods of need.
