Doctor Paul Farmer on the Call 'To Repair the World'Download audio (MP3)
In his 2001 graduation speech to medical students at Brown University, doctor and activist Paul Farmer said while science and technology are the heart of modern medicine, "you must add the soul." Farmer, the co-founder of Partners in Health, which brings modern health care to the poor, has focused much of his career on that hands-on approach to medicine, living among and treating locals in Haiti, Peru, Russia and other countries. Farmer joins us to talk about his advice to future doctors and his new book, "To Repair the World," a collection of his speeches on global health and social justice.
