Emily Cleveland Manchanda is an Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine at the Boston University School of Medicine, and works clinically in the Emergency Department at Boston Medical Center. As the Director for Equity Initiatives within the department, her research and advocacy work focuses on mitigating the effects of racism and other forms of discrimination in clinical care. She is passionate about health equity and developing strategies to support equitable care for patients of all races, ethnicities, genders and abilities.

After graduating from Yale with a degree in Art History and French, she spent two years working in Liberia for the Clinton Foundation before attending medical school at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. She initially matched into plastic surgery at NYU, but changed course after her PGY2 year to pursue a career in Emergency Medicine. She served as a chief resident at the Harvard-Affiliated (MGH-BWH) Emergency Medicine residency and the chair of the Massachusetts Medical Society's Resident and Fellows Section. She continues to be active within the American Medical Association and the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine. She and her husband Gaurav met while working in Liberia, and now live in the Boston area with their two delightfully strong-willed sons.
