This doctor, UNC grad believes an experiment he tried in Liberia could bring health care to everyone


It’s not often you’re handed $1 million and told to do whatever you’d like with it. That’s what’s just happened, though, to Raj Panjabi, a physician at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston who last week was awarded the 2017 TED Prize. In 2007, Panjabi co-founded what would later become Last Mile Health with a group of Liberian civil war survivors and American health workers. (Quartz)
