This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Isaac would like to put a mobile phone in the hand of every community health worker. As a designer he wants to help solve problems in areas that have poor infrastructure and limited access to resources.

The footage of Medic Mobile's work in Kenya was produced by the Skoll Foundation leading up to the 2014 Skoll World Forum. See the full video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2m63f...

Isaac Holeman is a designer-scholar striving for global health equity. As an ethnographer and cofounder of the social enterprise Medic Mobile, his work is about seeing through the eyes of the poor and marginalized and responding pragmatically. Medic Mobile received a Skoll award in 2014, and Isaac has been featured twice in Forbes Magazine as one of the top 30 social entrepreneurs under the age of 30.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
