Dr. Marx Itabelo Lwabanya is the Medical Director at Nundu Deaconess Hospital in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. His research focuses on improving maternal and newborn health in limited resource settings. In 2017, he won the Brown Master’s Award for Professional Excellence for his effort to improve neonatal care by developing an online training for neonatal care nurses and establishing a peer-mentoring program for at-risk mothers at the Van Norman Clinic in Bujumbura. His time serving poor communities in Nundu, Congo, a post conflict zone, reshaped his interest towards a holistic approach to a mother’s health that includes mental health. Previously, he has served with Hope Africa University in Burundi. He holds an MA in Healthcare Leadership from Brown University and a Bachelor of Medicine from UOB, Bukavu.
