Julia Iyasere, M.D.

Speaker; Executive Director, Dalio Center for Health Justice, NewYork-Presbyterian

Julia Iyasere, M.D., is Executive Director of the Dalio Center for Health Justice at NewYork-Presbyterian. In this role, she leads the Center’s efforts to address longstanding health disparities due to race, socioeconomic differences, limited access to care, and other complex factors that impact the wellbeing of our communities disproportionately. Established in 2020, the Dalio Center for Health Justice works collaboratively with representatives from NYP, Weill Cornell Medicine, and Columbia Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons to be a leader in the understanding and improving of health equity, and to drive action that results in measurable improvements in health outcomes for all.

A native of Southern California, Dr. Iyasere moved to the East Coast to attend Yale University where she graduated with a B.S. in Molecular Biology with a focus in Neuroscience. She joined the Columbia community at Columbia Vagelos College of Physician and Surgeons (VP&S), eventually choosing to pursue a dual degree with Columbia Business School and graduating with an M.D./M.B.A in 2008. After completing her residency in Internal Medicine at Columbia, Dr. Iyasere stayed for a year as Chief Resident before joining the Division of General Medicine at Columbia in 2012. She completed a part-time fellowship in Medical Simulation at the Mary and Michael Jaharis Simulation Center at VP&S during her first year with the Division.

Dr. Iyasere brings more than a decade of experience in medicine to her new role in the Center. She was previously the Associate Chief Medical Officer for Service Lines and the Co-Director of the Care Team Office. She was also Director of the Leadership Education and Development for Physicians (LEAD) Academy, Associate Designated Institutional Official for Graduate Medical Education at NYPH, and the Associate Program Director of the Columbia Internal Medicine Residency Training Program. An Assistant Professor of Medicine at Columbia University Irving Medical Center, Dr. Iyasere continues to see patients as an internist in the Section for Hospital Medicine.
