About Dr. Oriol

Dr. Nancy Oriol, a renowned anesthesiologist, innovator, Harvard educator, and pioneer in mobile medicine, is being recognized for her deep commitment to providing high-quality health care to patients who are under served and marginalized. Her creation of The Family Van, a mobile clinic that could deliver care to under served communities, eased such barriers as cost, transportation, stigma, and fear, and also educated trainees about culturally competent care and healthcare disparities.
