Nobel prize winner sets sights on fixing U.S. healthcare

Forbes, July 10, 2013
While health orgs are dooming their innovation to failure or dither by not taking any meaningful action, it's notable that a Nobel Peace Prize winner sees an opportunity to fix a critical portion of the U.S. healthcare system. Muhammad Yunus, is famous for creating the concept of microfinance which has brought thousands out of poverty via the Grameen Bank. Grameen America is their U.S. affiliate which has already lent $77 million to over 15,000 women impacting 60,000 people (each borrower averages a family of four). Grameen has partnered with Iora Health to offer primary care services to their borrowers in New York. They believe addressing healthcare is a key facet of bringing people out of poverty.
