New York, NY – The CUNY Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy (CUNY SPH) has appointed Dr. Innocent Clement, CEO and Founder of Ciba Health, to the CUNY SPH Foundation Board of Directors.
“Dr. Innocent Clement is at the forefront of patient-based solutions that educate and engage each individual in their own physical and mental health goals,” says CUNY SPH Dean Ayman El-Mohandes. “This is a critical time in public health to build trust and collaborate within the diverse communities we serve, and we are delighted to have Dr. Clement as an experienced guide as we prepare our professionals in this approach.”
Dr. Clement is a trained physician, angel investor, innovator and a serial entrepreneur. He is the CEO and Founder of Ciba Health, a digital health and a value-based care company for chronic disease reversal. He is also co-founder and Chief Medical Officer of Innomas Clinical Research, a New York and West African-based healthcare solutions provider. Prior to founding Ciba, Dr. Clement served as CEO and Co-Founder of Kaia Health Inc., a digital therapeutic company, where he oversaw U.S. initiatives, including partnerships, clinical trials, regulatory submissions, and expansion across North America.
Dr. Clement is a Nigerian immigrant to the United States and considers himself a global citizen, having grown up in multiple countries and exposed to different cultures and languages. This experience has made him deeply culturally sensitive and this has enhanced his MPH education to make him keenly aware of the challenges public health faces globally. He currently lives in New York City with his family.
“Dr. Clement brings to our Foundation Board not only the expertise of a medical professional, but also the dynamic perspective as an immigrant and builder of solutions,” says CUNY SPH Board Chair Lyndon Haviland. “This is crucial to our work in feeding the vibrant public health ecosystem of our city and nation, and we are honored to have him join us,”
“CUNY SPH students are ambitious, hardworking heads of households with a passion for giving back to their own neighborhoods and communities like them in a meaningful way,” says Adam M. Doyno, CUNY SPH Foundation executive director and director of development. “As a mentor and leader, Dr. Clement is a powerful role model and resource for our Foundation Board and the students we support.”
