Meet The Team

Eliminating Bias in AI

Advisory Board 
Steering Committee


​The Harvard GIVE mHealth "AI in Mobile Health" Program was led by Reginald Mbawuike -the Mobile Health Fellow at the Faculty of Arts & Science and Dr. Leandro Grimaildi, a national and international award recipient physician and Harvard University graduate. He is a former White House Consultant and affiliated with Harvard University, Boston Public Health Commission, Harvard Leadership Circle, US Health and Human Services, World Health Organization, Pan American Health Organization, along with Doctors Without Borders, Massachusetts Department of Public Health, and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.


His leadership was enhanced by his background and journey of improving health and quality of life for the most vulnerable individuals in the U.S. and around the world, and with a great focus on developing countries (especially in Latin America, Africa, and Asia) and minorities. Dr. Grimaldi -alongside with other public health Ivy League School trained leaders- offers innovative solutions for the most challenging public health problems of our current days and provides a platform with solutions aimed at helping to transform global health care by connecting professionals, information, insights through the GIVE mHealth AI technology with state-of-the-art research and clinical trials.
