(Noon Meeting) BARRY BIALEK, MD
SUSTAINABLE INVESTMENT IN HUMAN KIND

Dr. Bialek's career path began in 1974 in the Himalayas of Nepal, as a US Peace Corps Volunteer. While teaching math and science in a remote village high school, Dr. Bialek recognized his dual passions: medicine and sustainable community development (SCD).

After returning from Nepal, Dr. Bialek earned his MD degree from George Washington University and, in 1987, completed his residency in Family and Community Medicine at the University of Toronto and earned his board certification in Family and Community Medicine (Canada). Prior to 2010, Dr. Bialek’s medical practice was divided between Family Medicine and Emergency Medicine. He’s been a member of the faculties of Family Medicine at both the University of Toronto and the University of Arizona. 

Dr. Bialek’s second career focus is SCD. The majority of his SCD work has been in Nepal – directly benefitting more than half a million people – and with the White Mountain Apache Tribe, in Arizona. In this field, he’s been a faculty member of the Colleges of Engineering at the University of Colorado at Boulder and the Israel Institute of Technology, in Haifa.
