Janet Boachie, MS
Health Equity Fellow, Impact Investing
Janet Boachie is a health equity fellow at the California Health Care Foundation, where she works with the CHCF Health Innovation Fund to expand its investment strategy to include seed-stage companies, where traditionally underrepresented entrepreneurs — specifically founders who are Black, Latinx, other people of color, or female — face disparities in access to funding. These founders are critical partners because they are often able to tap into their lived experiences to champion technology solutions that align with the foundation’s mission of improving health care delivery to all Californians.
Prior to joining CHCF, Janet was a strategy consultant for HealthDesignED at the Emory University School of Medicine, where she helped develop equitable tech-enabled solutions to meet patients where they are and at the right time. She also founded a voice and mobile application that provides health care options based on patients’ insurance and location, as well as wait times for care. Janet received a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the University of California, Irvine, and a master of science degree in social entrepreneurship from the University of Southern California.
