The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) recently announced that Somava Stout, MD is one of 10 winners of its first-ever RWJF Young Leader Award. The award recognizes leaders from across the U.S. who are ages 40 or under for their exceptional contributions to improving the health of the nation.

As vice president of Patient-Centered Medical Home Development at Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA), Dr. Stout is a primary care physician who is committed to improving the health of underserved communities through patient-centered health system redesign.

“Dr. Stout’s commitment to the underserved is unparalleled, ” said Patrick Wardell, CHA’s chief executive officer. “[She] plays an essential role in ensuring our patients and communities receive better care and better health at a lower cost.”

Dr. Stout earned her medical degree at the University of California, San Francisco. She also completed a master’s degree at the School of Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley.

She then attended Harvard Medical School and completed her dual residency in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital and Children’s Hospital. She is an instructor in medicine at Harvard Medical School.

The 10 recipients of RWJF Young Leader Award each receive $40,000.
