Celebrating a Beacon of Innovation and Impact: Theresa Mwesigwa, SSP Alumna, Class of 2010

Theresa Mwesigwa

We are elated to spotlight an exceptional member of our alumni community—Theresa Mwesigwa. A standout scholar since her time as an SSP recipient, Theresa’s journey has been nothing short of inspirational. Her recent accolades prove that the sky is not the limit; it’s just the beginning.

Academic and Professional Achievements

After an illustrious academic track record, Theresa is currently an MBA candidate at the prestigious Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB). Beyond the walls of academia, she recently completed a transformative summer experience at Gather Health, where she was instrumental in innovating a new model for primary healthcare delivery targeted at older adults.

Revolutionizing Healthcare Delivery

At Gather Health, Theresa worked on critical components of the business and care delivery model. She was part of a team that not only focused on clinical excellence but also addressed the social challenges contributing to poor health outcomes in older adult populations. “I learned far more than I had hoped to on a team that quickly felt like family,” says Theresa, emphasizing the profound impact the experience had on her.

A New Chapter in Impact Investing

Switching gears, Theresa has now joined the Stanford GSB Impact Fund as a Healthcare Investor. With a vision set on transforming healthcare across Africa, Theresa is keen on supporting early-stage startups that share her mission. “After working to increase access to quality healthcare from the ground up, I’m excited to approach the challenge from a different angle—supporting founders who are building businesses that can make a difference,” she shares.
