CIBER Focus: "Entrepreneurship and Health Services in Kenya" with Peter Park
From Group Institute for Intl Business on February 8th, 2016
Peter Park has worked in Africa, primarily Kenya, to bring a more structured and accessible health care industry to the local communities. He discusses his work with Jessie Mroz, a Research Assistant with the Kelley Institute for International Business. Park, Partner at Mindflow Associates and Founder of Village Labs, explains that both these firms are focused on health care delivery in emerging and frontier markets in order to facilitate better care. He speaks to the exciting nature and unique challenges of being an entrepreneur in a developing country. Park chose to focus his efforts in Kenya because of his prior experience with IU's AMPATH, Academic Model for Providing Access to Healthcare, prior to enrolling in business school. Park is working with AMPATH to develop strategies to keep the programs up and running in spite of future funding uncertainty. *This video was recorded as a part of the Indiana University CIBER Focus Vodcast Series.
