A Stanford student uses technology to bring healthcare to Guatemala

Americas Now

Information can save lives. For this week’s Game Changer on “Americas Now” we meet a researcher who is using technology to pave a new path for healthcare in Guatemala.

Nearly half of Guatemala’s children are malnourished and lack of patient data makes it difficult for doctors to reach them and provide them with proper care.

But a researcher from Stanford University named Alejandro Chavez is changing that. He’s using technology to revolutionize how doctors get data. It makes vital information accessible where it never was and is breathing life into rural Guatemala.
