Women In The World Summit Panel Discusses Using Technology To Solve Global Health Problems
The Daily Beast reports on a panel discussion at the third Women in the World summit on Friday in which Barbara Bush, CEO and co-founder of Global Health Corps, and Gabi Zedlmayer, head of Hewlett-Packard's (HP) global social innovation program, talked about "how to harness technology to solve world health problems." According to the news service, Zedlmayer "called for a full 'eco system': Pharma, [research & development], the works," adding, "Much of HP's approach is through partnerships, which the company has established with many organizations, including Global Health Corps." Bush "talked passionately about her company's accomplishments, ... explaining that Global Health Corps was created on the Teach for America model: recruit the best and the brightest, just out of university, and send them into the field -- wherever there's a need -- for one year," the news service notes (Schwartz, 3/9).This is part of the KHN Morning Briefing, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
