Nathaniel Uchtmann grew up on a 4th-generation family farm in Illinois, where formative experiences shaped a deep respect for natural beauty and complexity. Building on that important early exposure to “real-world interconnectivity”, he also greatly enjoyed classroom opportunities to study connections through college coursework in Natural Sciences, Humanities, and Romantic Poetry. After completing his undergraduate degree at Southern Illinois University, he volunteered for one year in Kenya, which confirmed the suspicion that “unity through diversity” and “global citizenship” were not empty abstractions, but well worth pursuing. Afterwards, he completed a Law Degree, Master’s Degree in Environmental Sciences, and Medical Degree at the University of Illinois–with the aim of exploring joint promotion of environmental conservation and poverty reduction at the global level. He finished his residency in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics in June 2017 at the University of Illinois in Peoria. Nathaniel then completed a Global Health Fellowship through the University of California at Natividad Medical Center in Salinas, California and Last Mile Health in Liberia. He is currently practicing as a Physician (board-certified in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics). He is also New York Attorney.
He has a strong interest in exploring the beauty and diversity of life using lenses of Equity, Ethics, and Ecology. He is a passionate advocate for Planetary Justice, Health, and Sustainability.
