Dipesh Navsaria, MPH, MSLIS, MD, has been selected to join the 2015 class of Aspen Institute Ascend Fellows.
The Ascend Fellowship invests in diverse leaders from different walks of life who have breakthrough ideas to build economic security, educational success and health and well-being for low-income families.
“I’ll be looking at innovative two-generation approaches to working with families in poverty by integrating principles of early brain and child development together with clinical practice," explained Dr. Navsaria. "We have so many opportunities in primary care, given the access we have to families and the trust they place in their health care providers.”
The Aspen Institute is an educational and policy studies organization based in Washington, DC. Its mission is to foster leadership based on enduring values and to provide a nonpartisan venue for dealing with critical issues.
