Mitra Sadigh is writer, editor, and researcher at the Nuvance Health/University of Vermont Larner College of Medicine Global Health Program (NH/UVMLCOM GHP) where she serves as editor of the GH Diaries blog and eMagazine as well as faculty member of the GH Academy. With two bachelor’s degrees in music and philosophy, she has published on decolonization of GH, health equity, social and cultural determinants of health, and medical education. Mitra has organized, spoken on, and moderated multiple panels centered on advocacy, GH equity, and colonization/decolonization of GH for the United Nations General Assembly, Consortium of Universities for Global Health, and the NH/UVMLCOM GHP. She has created and taught curriculum on the topics of ethics, cultural relativity, and decolonization in GH for several medical education institutions.

She is also a fourth-year medical student at the Stony Brook University Renaissance School of Medicine where she has worked collaboratively to increase diversity at the residency level, health equity access as Policy Advocate for Students for a National Health Program (SNaHP), and LGBTQ* representation in healthcare and medical education through her role as the President of the local Medical Student Pride Alliance (MSPA) as well as Mentorship Coordinator for MSPA National. She has also served on the Social Determinants of Health curriculum committee and spearheaded initiatives to incorporate topics designed to enhance the school's curriculum. Passionate about the impact of conflict, disaster, and border zones on underserved communities, Mitra is planning to apply for continued training in emergency medicine.
