Sharad Kohli, M.D., is an affiliate faculty member in the Department of Population Health at Dell Medical School of the University of Texas. Kohli has dedicated his career to working with people who have been historically underserved and to advancing health justice. He has spent over 15 years working with Federally Qualified Health Centers in both urban and rural settings in California and Texas. He previously served as the director of clinical affairs of the Texas Association of Community Health Centers, where he provided clinical support to the more than 75 FQHCs throughout the state. Kohli is also a family physician at People’s Community Clinic, an FQHC in Austin, and is strongly committed to looking upstream at factors that influence health. At People’s, he has helped develop an interprofessional pain management program integrating numerous services including behavioral health, acupuncture, yoga therapy, nutrition, substance use services, a medical-legal partnership, group medical visits, and more. Kohli is co-chair of the Integrative Health Policy Consortium, a nonprofit consisting of 28 organizations and institutions representing over 600,000 integrative health care professionals nationwide. IHPC imagines a world with no barriers to health and looks to influence federal and state policy to advance that vision. Much of the recent work has focused on promoting evidence-based non-pharmacologic approaches to pain to helping mitigate the opioid epidemic. Kohli was intimately involved in the growth and development of the national nonprofit Integrative Medicine for the Underserved, a multidisciplinary organization committed to affordable, accessible integrative health for all. He co-founded its annual conference, was a member of its founding board of directors and created and chaired its policy committee. He received the UR4US Award in 2019, the organization’s highest honor, recognizing his contributions over the years, and currently sits on the advisory board.
