Aditya Nadimpalli, MD, Vice-President
Dr. Adi Nadimpalli, a pediatrician and internal medicine physician, did his training at Tulane University from 2001 to 2005. Post-Katrina he worked as a clinical assistant professor of internal medicine at University Hospital and at the Tulane University Community Health Center at the Covenant House in between working abroad. He is currently a hospitalist at the East Jefferson General Hospital.
Adi’s first assignment with MSF was in 2005, when he spent a year in Liberia as the sole physician in a remote field hospital with limited resources. He has since worked in several countries in various contexts such as Sri Lanka, where he provided emergency care to civilians in a post–civil war context; in Nigeria, managing a trauma hospital; and as the field coordinator of an emergency cholera response in Bauchi State (also in Nigeria). In one assignment he traveled to Malawi, where he treated people with HIV in an MSF HIV/AIDS program that provides medical care, treatment of opportunistic illnesses (like Tuberculosis), palliative care, and prevention and education campaigns. Malawi has one of the highest rates of HIV/AIDS in the world.
In between MSF missions, Adi has worked in Mozambique as a clinical advisor for a rural HIV program with Friends in Global Health (Vanderbilt University) and has worked with patients at the Indian Health Service in Pine Ridge, South Dakota, and at Common Ground Health Clinic in New Orleans. He has volunteered and provided family and community services at the India Medical Association Free Clinic, the Apna Ghar Domestic Violence Shelter, and as a literacy director in a Los Angeles housing project. Adi received his medical training at the University of Illinois at Chicago and completed his residency at Tulane University. He holds a BS in biochemisty and a BS in economics from the University of California at Los Angeles.
