Alum brings his work in Kenya back to Indiana.
Adrian Gardner ’98 MD’03, MPH, first traveled to Eldoret, Kenya, in 2001, as a medical student. Now he serves as executive director of the AMPATH Consortium, a group of North American academic medical centers that partner with Moi University, the Kenyan Ministry of Health, and other institutions to provide care, training, and research in the country.
After living in Kenya for seven years, he and his family—wife Jessica and their three children—are now in the Hoosier State, where Gardner has taken on two new roles: director of the Indiana University Center for Global Health and associate dean for global health at Indiana University School of Medicine.
Gardner completed his internal medicine residency and infectious diseases fellowship at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, then returned to Brown for a clinical research fellowship in infectious diseases. While there he worked in the Rhode Island TB clinic and developed the AMPATH tuberculosis program, becoming executive director in 2012.
