Isabella Leung

Isabella is an “emerging” caregiver for her immigrant parents. She is passionate about bringing concepts to practice and improving the US healthcare system for older adults, family caregivers, and vulnerable populations. She has studied human-centered design as a creative problem solving approach for sector-specific and cross-section solutions. One of her most rewarding professional endeavors has been helping to build the online health insurance marketplace for District of Columbia residents and small business employees. Currently, she provides consulting services to health systems, nonprofit organizations, and governments. When not contemplating the intersections of healthcare systems, health aging, and the patient experience, Isabella likes to hike, camp, practice yoga, and explore caves.
