While pursuing his bachelor’s of science at Georgetown University, Maniya led a group of five students to introduce a healthcare bill into the House of Representatives and the Senate.
In his role as Trustee of the American Medical Association, he has “had the privilege of representing over 200,000 physicians, residents, and medical students in perhaps the most rapidly changing health care landscape.” In order to jumpstart health reform conversations and physician-led innovation, the “AMA recently created an innovation hub (Health2047), partnered with an existing health technology incubator (MATTER), and launched a digital matchmaking website for physicians and entrepreneurs (AMA Physician’s Innovation Network). Together, these initiatives will help to improve the health care system for all Americans.”
“It’s profoundly rewarding,” Maniya observed, ”to leverage the platform of an organization that has been tirelessly striving to improve the lives of physicians and patients for 165 years to help improve our health care system.”
In his free time, Mr. Maniya enjoys performing stand-up comedy.
