The Expert View
Below please find two experts, Dr. Stephen Bickler of U.C. San Diego School of Medicine and Dr. Adam Kushner of Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, discussing surgery both as a global public health issue and a micro, facility-by-facility and patient-by-patient matter. Though they are not associated with Solventas, their views are informed, accurate and poignant, but also hopeful. As Dr. Kushner notes, these are not “faces of desperation,” but instead of professionals who are bringing a can-do attitude against seemingly impossible odds.
[LINK OUT TO OR EMBED VIDEOS. WOULD LIKE TO END THE VIDEOS AT APPROXIMATELY 2:13 FOR BICKLER (AT THE BEGINNING OF HIS DISCUSSION OF THE CONFERENCE) AND 2:23 FOR KUSHNER, IF POSSIBLE.]
The Global Effort
The film “Right to Heal” talks about the global health impact of not having reliable access to essential surgery and is an excellent explanation of the issue Solventas is addressing.
