Each week, our colleague Maria Franzoni invites one of our keynote speakers to discuss their life, work, current projects and passions. We hope that hearing more about them will allow you to get a better understanding of who they are.
This week Maria’s guest on the show is Dr. Pritpal S. Tamber. Pritpal tells us how he became an editor at the British Medical Journal, what he learnt from working at Biomed, explains a bit about TED and TEDMED and talks about his work in Bridging Health & Community. He shares his thoughts on why healthcare systems are failing and why he is flexible on being a cat or a dog person!
Please welcome Pritpal Tamber
Pritpal Tamber – Guest
Pritpal is the CEO and co-founder of Bridging Health & Community, a Seattle based non-profit dedicated to transforming how healthcare works with communities. At the heart of its work is the insight that our current approach to health, deploying technical solutions to biomedical problems, is failing in a world of circumstance related chronic conditions. Bridging Health & Community has gleaned 12 overarching principles for how healthcare can work with communities. These principles also have the potential to foster the agency of communities, their ability to make purposeful choices, something increasingly recognised as core to health. He is the former physician editor of TEDMED and began his career as an editor at the British Medical Journal.
