Bio

David Mazumder is an MD-PhD dual degree candidate at Harvard Medical School and a leader in the health professional student movement for a sustainable future. He is a founding Board Member and Treasurer of Future Doctors in Politics, Inc., a nonprofit organization that educates and empowers medical students with the skills they need to advocate for their patients and communities and produce the systemic changes necessary to address the social determinants of health. He previously served as a 2021 Advocacy Co-Chair for Medical Students for a Sustainable Future (MS4SF), a national network of medical students working to prepare health professionals for careers shaped by climate change's impacts and activate their institutions to mitigate and adapt to those effects. David's efforts with MS4SF included organizing a series of "actionars" to educate participants and provide real-time, concrete collective actions in support of climate policy, as well as representing the organization at conferences with healthcare coalition partners and federal officials. David has also pushed for climate action through his volunteer work with Citizens Climate Lobby and has trained as an En-ROADS Ambassador with Climate Interactive, a think tank dedicated to using the best available evidence to inform policy discussions among the public and policymakers. He is currently studying neuroscience as a PhD student and lives in Cambridge, MA.
