About Madison Campbell

Based out of Palm Springs, California, Madison Campbell is a driven entrepreneur and CEO to Leda Health Company, whose mission is to revolutionize our existing systems to better prevent sexual assault and bring justice to serve survivors in their communities. Through Leda Health, Madison Campbell calls on us to reflect on what we value most and where our society can do better, and systems can be improved. 

Through Leda Health, Madison Campbell has also created the Iyanu Scholarship, through which she is extending the opportunity to womxn-identifying, Nigerian-descended individuals working in the world of business to earn a scholarship to help pursue their ambitions and promote Nigerian and Nigerian-American talent in the professional world. 

The scholarship is named for Iyanu, the software development shop that Madison founded in Nigeria in order to help curb the unemployment crisis in Western Africa. Through the shop, software engineers are provided with proper electricity, wifi, and skills training as well as medical insurance, leave allowance, and pension. The Iyanu Scholarship is an extension of these socioeconomic mobility efforts and will be awarded to one undergraduate or graduate student who needs financial assistance during the 2021-2022 school year for fees, tuition, and materials like books. 

Madison’s involvement in nonprofit organizations began long before Iyanu; for as long as she can remember, she’s felt a pull to help others who weren’t blessed with the same opportunities she’s had. For two years, she worked with St. Clair Hospital as a volunteer, providing patient support, and assisting patients following their procedures. She also spent a few months as a Community Engagement Intern with Free the Children, teaching English to children within the rural communities and orphanages throughout the Beijing area. From 2013 to 2016, Madison was also involved in Habitat for Humanity International, where she served as a Community Volunteer working towards poverty alleviation. 

Within her capacity as CEO of Leda Health, Madison Campbell and the talented team around her work diligently to empower survivors of sexual abuse trauma and provide meaningful resources to those impacted. Through their efforts, they hope to make an impact sexual assault prevention in communities by connecting with healthcare providers to make resources readily available for the survivors of trauma. Their resources include free trauma support groups, self-administered DNA collection, and sexual health testing, putting the power back into the hands of the survivors.
