Panagis Galiatsatos

MD, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine

Born and raised in East Baltimore’s Greektown, physician Panagis Galiatsatos says he owes it to his hometown to help reduce the health disparities that afflict so many in the city. He channeled his commitment to health equity into Medicine for the Greater Good (MGG), a program he co-founded with colleagues at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. Since 2011, MGG has inspired hundreds of undergraduate and graduate student volunteers across Johns Hopkins to help underserved city residents become advocates for their own health.

On his own time, Galiatsatos speaks about chronic health conditions and takes part in screenings, health fairs and other events in schools, churches and libraries in East Baltimore. A pulmonary and critical care fellow in the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Galiatsatos regards health disparities as “primary health issues, not just primary care issues” that transcend medical specialties.
