Meet Michael J. Westerhaus, MD

I believe in working for health equity for all individuals and communities through providing primary care. As a clinician, I find great joy in working with refugee and immigrant patients to address their health concerns in a just and culturally sensitive manner. I value listening to patients as one of the most important tools in striving to provide the best healthcare possible. As a medical anthropologist, I am very interested in understanding the impact of socioeconomics and culture on health and illness. In my role as a member of the Global Health Faculty at the University of Minnesota, I work both here in Minnesota and in northern Uganda to improve community-based primary care delivery, teach about the social determinants of health, and build partnerships based upon respect and equality that advance health for all.

I love biking to work, spending time outdoors, cooking, winter, and spending quality time with my family and friends.
