Abel Geleta (BK '25) is a History of Science, Medicine, and Public Health major from Ethiopia who has spent the past 12 years in the United States. His childhood experience and noticing the contrasting reality of living in the US have inspired him to use healthcare and global health as a means of giving back to both his native and current country while continuing to serve others at the intersection of public health, health policy, and legal advocacy. He intends to devote his academic and professional pursuits to acquiring the knowledge and experiences necessary to address structural health inequalities and disparities in the United States and abroad. Abel's participation in global health research through the Yale Collaborative Action Project (YCAP) to assess Ethiopia's childhood cancer burden has instilled in him the necessity and importance of working in global health. Abel is enthusiastic about addressing global health at the intersection of technology, finance, and digital health to scale the numerous benefits of innovation and progress occurring in the United States to regions with health issues. Outside of class, Abel writes about science and social justice for the Yale Daily News, volunteers as a Medical Debt and Insurance Counselor at the HAVEN Free Clinic, and is the ESL Program Coordinator at Elena's Light. Additionally, he is the president of the Yale Ethiopian Eritrean Student Association. In his free, Abel enjoys playing basketball, watching and practicing mixed martial arts, running, and creating content for his mental health Instagram page.
