PIVOT Talk Draws Audience From Around World

Tara Loyd, co-CEO, and Dr. Michael Rich, co-Founder, attracted an audience that stretched from Boston to Nepal as they spoke this morning on “Strengthening Healthcare In Rural Madagascar: Spreading The Model”. The talk was held at Brigham and Women’s Hospital as part of its Grand Rounds series and extended via webcast to a global audience.

The presentation addressed the urgent healthcare needs in Madagascar and PIVOT’s first 18 months of operations on the ground, which has included conducting an 1800-household baseline survey, finding the right places to begin the intervention, building a staff and board, and funding and conducting scientific research at the intersection of poverty, healthcare, and the environment.
