View Azieb’s condensed bio here.


I direct DULCE, a pediatric care approach. Through collaborative efforts with early childhood, health and legal systems, DULCE seeks to transform the way families with infants experience the delivery of supports and services.

I do this work because

I am inspired by the strength and resilience of recent migrants. Being the daughter of immigrants, I have witnessed my family’s navigation of health and social service systems and hope to contribute in making such systems more equitable.

I am most proud of

Leading the development of a new peer network and learning group at The Health Management Academy for diversity and inclusion executive leaders at the largest health systems nationally.
