World Health Organization Young Leader in Primary Care
Fellow of the Academy of Wilderness Medicine

Lucas Jacob Trout is lecturer on global health and social medicine at Harvard Medical School, faculty director at Siamit, and Sayaqagvik project director at Maniilaq Social Medicine. In these roles, he leads clinical, research, and training programs focused on advancing Indigenous health rights by connecting academic medicine and community care.

Lucas grew up in the Midwest as one of eight siblings. He spent his early career working as a firefighter and EMT in the Mountain West and Alaska, where he discovered a love for the crossroads of health care and social science. He went on to study clinical psychology at Seattle University before returning to Kotzebue to found Maniilaq Social Medicine and Siamit in 2016.

Since then, Lucas and the Siamit family have worked to build a model for tribal health partnerships around the principles of Indigenous leadership, social medicine, and clinical excellence. For this work, Lucas was named a Young Leader in Primary Care by the World Health Organization. In his free time, Lucas likes to roast coffee, read fiction, and skijor with his dog, Casimir.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
