Shoshanah is the CEO of AIRnyc, a data-driven, technology forward community-based organization headquartered in the South Bronx that is working to increase health equity for vulnerable New Yorkers.
Since 2009, Shoshanah has led AIRnyc in its evolution from a small research initiative focused on one disease (asthma) in one age cohort (children) in one neighborhood (Harlem) to a social enterprise that now serves adults and children citywide, by helping to address the impact of social determinants of health (SDOH) as drivers of medical utilization, cost, and health outcomes. With as much as 40 percent of health outcomes related to SDOH such as housing, education, poverty, and nutrition, AIRnyc is leveraging its 17 years of expertise to pioneer new, integrated models of care to address our most pressing health problems. AIRnyc’s community health workers meet families where they live to help them disrupt the cycles that keep communities of color in certain zip codes trapped in sickness due to asthma, diabetes, hypertension as well as challenges related to aging.
Shoshanah began her career in the Peace Corps, where she served as a community health worker in Burkina Faso, West Africa and also holds a master of science from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. She considers her MBA experience as formative training that prepared her to build a high-impact social enterprise and especially appreciates the contributions and vision that Professor Ray Horton has given the School. Shoshanah speaks five languages and lives in Brooklyn with her wife and two sons.
