Sanam Ghazvini
​​​​​​​Sanam Ghazvini is a graduate of the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health with a Master's in Health Administration. She also received her bachelor's degree in Kinesiology from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 2020. During her undergraduate studies, she went on several international medical trips in Kenya and Ecuador where she developed a deeper interest in community health and identifying ways to reduce barriers to access healthcare, prompting her to pursue graduate school.

During graduate school, she had the opportunity to work at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh where she gained experience in hospital operations and patient experience working on projects aimed at reducing readmission rates, reconstructing staffing models, and improving language access services. Additionally, she also worked as a Marketing Intern for UCSF Health Hub and was responsible for planning the annual UCSF Health Awards event where she was exposed to the role of digital health start-ups in advancing care delivery. 

Sanam's prior experiences in health care have made her most excited about exploring the intersection of community health and innovation to foster a more accessible and personalized care experience.
