Daniel Palazuelos

Senior Health and Policy Advisor for Community Health Systems, Partners in Health

Daniel Palazuelos, MD, MPH is a global health implementer-educator who holds positions at Harvard Medical School (HMS) the Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) and Partners In Health (PIH). He started his career by living and working with community health workers (CHWs) in impoverished communities in Chiapas, Mexico, and these grassroots experiences have deeply influenced his approach to addressing the biggest challenges in global health.

Now as a clinician-educator in the US, a strategist for the PIH project in Mexico, a mentor at HMS, a residency assistant program director at BWH, and a senior health and policy adviser in community health systems at PIH, he offers these insight whenever possible to assure that our finest clinicians are trained to understand the community perspective, and our exemplar health systems are aligned to the real needs of people living in the poorest and most difficult circumstances.
