Dr. Alnaserbelh AlNaseri is an Iraqi-American medical doctor and youth leader. Born and raised in the war-torn Iraq, he spent over 10 years serving his community as an Iraqi Youth Parliament member, Y-Peer educator, and student leader working on the youth’s most pressing issues in terror-struck areas of conflict in his Iraqi homeland. After several life threats and attacks by terrorist organizations and militias, and barely escaping an assassination attempt in Iraq in 2015, he sought refuge in the United States, where he started working in the field of ophthalmology, helping develop and streamline treatments for aggressive eye conditions, including glaucoma, cataract and amblyopia. He currently is a senior researcher at Vold Vision in Arkansas, working with industry-leading eye surgeons providing next-generation eye care to patients. Dr. AlNaseri is a proud World Learning alumnus, having had participated in the 2010 State-sponsored Iraqi Young Leader Exchange Program (IYLEP), which positively impacted the course of his life, arming him with the knowledge and training to become a successful youth leader.
