Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2013
This description of Morgan Guerra's work was prepared when Morgan Guerra was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2013.
Morgan is turning the traditional model of community health upside down by caring for communities with chronic diseases as a whole rather than only those who are ill and enabling all community members to take charge of their own care. Morgan seeks to shift the chronic, degenerative disease healthcare paradigm to one focused on wellness rather than disease. Using a disruptive model that includes prevention campaigns and an innovative monitoring system, he is able to maintain community wellbeing and chronic, degenerative disease control for each individual community member. Morgan’s model allows for remote, continuous monitoring using telemedicine, health coaches, and mobile clinic units.
