I truly believe that health is the foundation upon which the rest of our lives are based. With equal access to health opportunities, we can all better capitalize on educational, entrepreneurial, and creative opportunities.

Parysa Oskouipour hails from Texas, USA. Parysa likes to believe that lasting change can be fostered by a combination of short and long game techniques, a theory she applies toward health and social justice causes she cares about. Prior to joining GHC, Parysa worked at a public health nonprofit, creating a media consent training to standardize procedures for collecting informed consent for photos/videos of clients served by the organization's programs. Outside of work Parysa and three other women hosted two resoundingly successful trivia nights in order to raise money for the ACLU and Planned Parenthood. Parysa’s hobbies include scuba diving in the deep blue sea and hiking up the earth's peaks.
