Mark Arnoldy is the Executive Director of Nyaya Health, an organization that is realizing the right to health by delivering transparent, data-driven health care for Nepal's rural poor. In addition to his nut allergy, Mark is allergic to small thinking. Learn more about the thinking that makes up Nyaya Health's Cultural DNA at http://www.nyayahealth.org/aboutus/.

After nearly dying on his first trip to Nepal from a lack of access to health care following a severe allergic reaction, Mark was afforded a rare glimpse of empathy with the millions of Nepalis without care. That incident was the reason he committed himself to a life of building health systems for the world's poorest. Prior to Nyaya Health, Mark founded NepalNUTrition to treat malnourished children and advised the creation of two blended value businesses in the United States that fund nutrition programs in Nepal. He graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Colorado at Boulder, completed Harvard's Global Health Effectiveness Program, and was a Fulbright Scholar to Nepal. Mark is a Cordes Fellow, Bluhm/Helfand Social Innovation Fellow, and Aspen Ideas Festival Scholar.
