Anisa Ibrahim, MD, was included in Carnegie Corporation of New York’s 2021 List of Great Immigrants, which honors individuals who have enriched and strengthened our society and our democracy through their contributions and actions.

Ibrahim was among 34 individuals recognized, who represent more than 30 countries of origin and embody service to society in roles ranging from medical providers and researchers to advocates and politicians.

Ibrahim came to America as a child with her parents. Her family fled civil unrest in Somalia and went to Kenya before moving to the U.S. and the Seattle area. She received her childhood pediatric care at Harborview Medical Center. Today, she is a pediatric primary care provider at Harborview and medical director of that very clinic.
