Juliana Prestes

Director, Community Technology

Through a multi-disciplinary approach to medicine, Juliana explores the immediate needs of vulnerable patients in Saint John and the greater Maritimes. The main objective of Juliana’s work on behalf of IMPART is to develops projects in Artificial Intelligence, SaaS and mobile Apps focused on benefiting vulnerable patients.

Juliana went to medical-school at the Universidad de Aquino and has continued her academic and non-academic studies through Horizon Health Network, University of New Brunswick, University of Pennsylvania and Microsoft. She has hopes to be the first “MD-PhD” candidate at Dalhousie Medicine New Brunswick specializing in 21st century medicine for vulnerable patients.

Juliana is mentored by Dr. John Dornan, chief of the ER at the Saint John Regional Hospital, Mr. John Swan and Dr. Keith Brunt. Her interests includes translational medicine, conflict and rural medicine, orthopaedic surgery, AI and machine learning, vulnerable populations and optimization of health resources.

Outside medicine, Juliana enjoys nature, music and daily yoga. She is also a medallist in equestrian jumping and an experienced backpacker.
