Dr. Prabhjot Singh


ADL New York’s Outreach Network, a division of the Next Generation Philanthropy Community, joined Dr. Prabhjot Singh on May 14, 2014  for an intimate conversation discussing his work with ADL, commonalities between the Sikh and Jewish communities, and anti-Sikh bias in the United States and abroad. Dr. Singh was a victim of a violent hate crime and spoke about the ways in which his attack brought to light issues that Sikh Americans face every day. The event was generously hosted by Amy and Harrie Bakst.

Dr. Prabhjot Singh is the Director of Systems Design at the Earth Institute and Assistant Professor of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University. He is the co-chair of the One Million Community Health Worker Campaign, which is an initiative of the African Union and UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network. Domestically, he focuses on developing community-based health care delivery systems, where he is a practicing doctor in East Harlem. Prabhjot completed an MD at Cornell and PhD in Neural and Genetic Systems at Rockefeller University, with a Post-Doctoral fellowship in Sustainable Development at Columbia University. In August, 2012 he co-authored a NY Times Op-Ed on anti-Sikh violence entitled “How Hate Gets Counted.”   His work has been featured in Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, Lancet, WHO Bulletin, Health Affairs, Global Health and Diplomacy.

ADL Next Generation Philanthropy Community Outreach Network (NGPC ON) provides personal, intimate opportunities for NGPC leaders to connect their friends and neighbors to learn about and become engaged with the mission and work of ADL in the New York Region.
