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 innovative projects in Artificial Intelligence, SaaS, mobile Apps and other technologies focused on benefiting vulnerable patients. In addition, Juliana has generated and managed several humanitarian projects for the United Nations, Rotary Club, AIDS Saint John, Sophia Recovery Centre and Hope Community, in Central Africa.

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,  Dr. Keith Brunt  and other IMPART team members. Her interests includes translational medicine, conflict and rural medicine, orthopaedic surgery, artificial intelligence, 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.
