Anna Young ~ Salud del Sol and IIH on MP.tv!

Great to interview Anna Young tonight on MaximizingProgress.tv! Co-founder of Salud del Sol, an appropriate technology-driven social venture harnessing renewable energy for health-related devices. Their core product solution is a solar-powered autoclave for sterilizing clinical tools at low-cost, a problem especially prevalent in off-grid areas, including their start-location in Nicaragua. Anna is responsible for developing new programs and managing donor and corporate relations. Plus more recently Anna's been involved with MIT's IIH especially on the D-Lab Health class and their field partnerships, also in Nicaragua. Very cool!
