Mission Possible: Social Entrepreneurs on the Frontiers of Health and Development

Featured scholars: Jamila Abass, Karan Chopra, Rubayat Khan, and Misan Rewane

// Innovations and new ideas often come from individuals determined to be bold in the face of wicked problems, not necessarily from the biggest stakeholders at the table. Social entrepreneurs around the world are making major contributions to health and development as they invent solutions to what once seemed like insurmountable challenges. How can mobile technology feed whole communities and provide access to diagnostic health services? What if we upended the relationship between education and labor to help build healthier communities? Moderated by Maura O'Neill.
