Kanwal L Haq, M.S., co-author of Taking Care of You, is a medical anthropologist, community organizer, and non-profit consultant. She currently leads the NYC women’s health programs at the Arnhold Institute for Global Health at Mount Sinai’s Icahn School of Medicine. An applied-research scientist dedicated to education and health equity, Kanwal utilizes community-based participatory research and implementation science to build more effective, efficient and equitable systems of care for women across the world. Her desire to bridge the gap between academic knowledge and community resources served as the catalyst for Taking Care of You. Prior to joining Mount Sinai, Kanwal worked at Yale School of Medicine and completed fellowships at the United Nations, Americorps, and the University Teaching Hospital (CHUK) in Kigali, Rwanda. Kanwal completed her B.S. in biological sciences from the University of Missouri and her M.S. in medical anthropology from the Boston University School of Medicine.
