Spotlight Health 2018: The Cutting Edge of Medicine and Science

This is Spotlight Health on Aspen Public Radio, our six-part series, partnering with the Aspen Ideas Festival and the Spotlight Health Conference.

Each week, we bring you conversations with an exceptional mix of inspiring and provocative experts, who dive into topics of global and domestic health.

Episode Two: The Cutting Edge of Medicine and Science

This week, host Alycin Bektesh speaks to Sonia Ramamoorthy, who performed surgery on Larry Smarr, based on years of data he collected about his own colon. We go to Kathmandu where Abhilasha Karkey is working to combat antibacterial resistance, and then to the Bay Area, where Vanessa Mason is working to match the money with the medicine.
