About Dr Rishi Manchanda

Dr Rishi Manchanda is a physician, author and healthcare leader who has spent more than a decade developing strategies to improve health outcomes in resource-poor communities. He has served as Director of Social Medicine for a network of community health centres in Los Angeles and as the lead primary care physician for homeless Veterans. 

Dr Manchanda is also the President of HealthBegins, a social enterprise that provides healthcare professionals and community partners with tools to improve the care they provide to people in their local communities. 

His TED talk, ‘What makes us sick? Look upstream’, has been watched by more than two million people and his 2013 TEDbook, The Upstream Doctors—which introduces a new model of healthcare to support those from low-resource communities—has become recommended reading in medical schools across the world.
