Being in love with medicine, people, and social movements, Dr. Augie Lindmark seeks to understand why some people have health care, why some don’t, and who gets to decide.
Augie earned his medical degree from the University of Minnesota and completed an Oryema Fellowship in Social Medicine, where his research and writing focused on the sociopolitical roots of health—specifically, health system structures and the Right to Health movement.
In the clinical setting, Augie is an internal medicine physician at Yale New Haven Hospital with a focus on primary care and HIV medicine. He is also a resident physician in the Yale Primary Care program.
Augie has been featured on various media outlets including The Washington Post, The Guardian, Pacific Standard, and The Correspondent, among others. His passion for storytelling and narrative medicine has appeared on multiple platforms including WordSprout and The Moth. He continues to write on the topics of public health, health inequities, and the role of organizing in medicine. You can find him on Twitter @AugieLindmark.
