Mark became interested in health of indigenous communities initially as a pre-med student at Creighton University, where he worked with the Schlegel Center for Service and Justice. While in medical school and residency at Georgetown University, he worked with the Creighton-affiliated community health worker program in the Dominican Republic, and was inspired by this care model. In August 2011, after finishing residency, he moved to Ollantaytambo, Peru to work with the local government clinic, deliver primary care to the rural communities, and most importantly, start a community health worker program. He currently works as a Cardiac Electrophysiologist in Anchorage, AK after completing fellowships at the University of Washington in 2016. In his free time he likes hiking, camping, and exploring Alaska with his wife and two children. He is continually inspired by SVH’s Peruvian health workers.
